Most likely you tore or cut something, possibly hymen. If hymen bleeding will stop rather quickly. A period would be prolonged bleeding and dark blood versus bright red blood.

Bright red blood would be from torn tissue and that could be from a torn hymen or any nearby tissue you scratched. Menstrual blood is quite different in color and consistency.
