Watch, not worry: Starting workouts usually leads to aches and pains in joints and muscles that are overused. The good news is that the pain usually settles in a couple of weeks with consistent workout routine. If the pain persists of worsens, pl get yourself checked with your OB.

Maybe, maybe not: If the pelvic pain only occurs during exercise, it may be just muscular as you get into shape and not a problem. If the pelvic pain comes and goes, it might be adhesions post C/section, in which case if they worsen you need t see your OB MD.
