See your doctor: It is not unusual to have spotting in early pregnancy, possibly from implantation bleeding. Your doctor can check your Beta-hcg (pregnancy hormone) levels to determine if the pregnancy appears to be progressing normally until you are far enough along for an ultrasound. Many women with spotting go on to have a normal pregnancy. I wish you well.
