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.

In brief: Breakthrough bleed

Breakthrough bleeding is very common.
Most likely cause is a hormonal change. If it continues you can see gynecologist to get checked out, but one occurrence is nothing to worry about. You aren't sick at all, just a change in hormones, most likely.
