Could be: This sounds like old blood, but any bleeding in pregnancy you should always inform your doctor. I'm assuming you are having clumps of left-over Progesterone gel, and not blood clumps. Definitely make an appointment. An ultrasound will ease your fears for sure.

Your doc should: Have explained that to u- what to expect, in my pts it is common to get that, but u should call your doc as your doc may or may not want to check you, and i assume you already had an ultrasound to check fetal viability because if you haven't u need one now , and in the future if your doc puts u on a med like that your doc is supposed to tell you what you could expect from taking it.
