Spottting: Along with a positive pregnancy test may mean that the embryo just implanted itself ( this is called nidation) in the uterine mucosa.

It's ok: This can be normal. We call it "Implantation Site Bleeding". It is where the baby is trying to stick to the uterus. If you notice bleeding like a period, that is more concerning and you may want to visit your OBGYN.
