Irregular bleeding: Irregular spotting is one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test . There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit.

Check a test : Not likely but you can always check a pregnancy test at home. I suspect you just had some leftover blood in the back of the vagina that came out after your period.
