No: Generally not, unless the bleeding is due to localized infection at the cervix (ie chlamydia). Bleeding in the first trimester is typically not an infectious process, and will not be affected by antibiotics.

Your question is vague because if you have an infection like Dr Fogelson mentions, then you need the antibiotic.
