Maybe: Sometimes coagulated blood looks like tissue (it's the plasma portion of your blood, that when coagulated takes on a stringy, tan appearance). Cervical biopsies are typically not too invasive, just a pinch or two of tissue. I would be worried if you have a fever or are soaking a pad in 2 hours or less, or bleeding more than a period. Otherwise, weird discharge is probably okay, just blood.
