Breakthrough bleed: what you're describing sounds most likely to be breakthrough bleeding. That is bleeding that occurs earlier then it should for your cycle. Very common. If any concern for pregnancy, recommend home pregnancy test on first morning urine. If negative, repeat in 7 to 10 days. If this bleeding issue continues for the next one or two cycles, see your GYN provider. Hope this was helpful. Best of luck
