Lots of things: First of all bleeding is very common. It is even more common after treatment and more common with twins. Could be from your hormones, could be from some fluid in the uterus around the pregnancy, may be that one pregnancy did not develop well. Only time will tell. but the bleeding itself is not dangerous
