Very possibly: No bleeding is truly normal with pregnancy. Some is less worrisome. Does require an immediate check up, labs and possibly an ultrasound. The labs confirm blood type and how far along pregnancy is. Ultrasound, if appropriate, looks for ectopic or other possibilities. Initial and repeat labs with pelvic and bed rest may be all that is needed. Does need attention!
