Pink or red tinges: "spotting" usually refers to mild or moderate vaginal bleeding that is either before, during, or after menses. Most women who say that they have spotting would be seeing tinges, streaks or spots of pink or red on underwear or liners. It can be normal but it can also be a sign of hormonal imbalance. If it is during a state of pregnancy it must be immediately evaluated even though it might be normal.
