Not unusual: If the fibroid was submucosal, then the uterine lining was disrupted during the surgery so it is not unusual to expect some bleeding associated with that, it is also not unusual that you would have normal "period bleeding" separate form the postoperative bleeding. None of this sounds worrisome.
