Not to worry: Does' sound as something serious. May be caused by ovulation.

Possibilities: It's possible that the physical act of intercourse could have traumatized the vaginal canal or cervix itself and caused some bleeding, this can be especially true if you have some of the normal variants of the cervix like an ectropion. But you don't mention the timing and it's possible that you have developed an infection too. If bleeding persists or other symptoms develop get checked out.
