Possible: Many women do have spotting around the time of ovulation. That is quite common and very normal. It is due to the transient drop in estrogen levels that occurs just before ovulation.

To get pregnant, must you have sex right when ovulation occurs?

No: Both the egg and the sperm have some leeway here. The sperm can be viable for several days and the egg can be viable for 24 hours or more. If your looking to avoid pregnancy, err on caution and leave a pretty big window, if trying to concieve time it closer.

Hypomenorrhea: Very light menstrual flow can be normal. Having regular cycles that aren't too heavy or painful is more important than concern about enough flow. A sudden change in menstrual flow can signal a problem, like a hormonal change or pregnancy.
