Not necessarily: Having had a prior Cesarean section does not necessitate or obligate someone to have another Cesarean. In consultation with your obstetrician, you need to discuss the reason(s) for your first Cesarean and he/she will review your current pregnancy and together you can discuss the risks and benefits of a trial of labor after Cesarean (TOLAC)--an attempt to deliver vaginally.

You need an OB : You need to sit down with an obstetrician and review your history in detail and try to determine if your prior loss is due to cervical insufficiency, a "weak" cervix. If it is, you may be a candidate for a Cervical Cerclage.

Unsure: That's difficult to determine from your question. I would really want to see it; possibly culture or biopsy the area and find out what it is. Being that we don't know what it is I would say avoid sex until a physician determines what it is.
