Ask your OB: Your ob/gyn or the sono technician can tell you this information. You probably won't be able to tell by pictures that you have been given. Also, keep in mind that the placenta actually migrates around, usually (but not always) towards the uterine fundus as your pregnancy progresses.

Probably and nothing: The vast majority of low lying placentas discovered at 18 weeks resolve spontaneously prior to term. There is nothing you can do to help it.

Maybe: Spotting early in pregnancy can be normal. But you had previa with your previous pregancy which can cause bleeding. Some other causes get checked.
