It's too early to say if the baby is okay. At 5 weeks all you can see by sonogram is a small pregnancy sac. Bleeding during pregnancy is very common and many women who experience it go on to have normal pregnancies. If the bleeding continues and becomes heavier, then you may be miscarrying. The only advice is to practice pelvic rest (no intercourse) and don't over exert yourself.

Rhogam is given to Rh negative mothers to prevent future Rh positive fetal pregnancies from terminating. Your present pregnancy status can be discerned from an ultrasound and serial blood pregnancy tests when you see a GYN MD.
