In brief: Not unusual

Occasional small amounts of spotting mid-cycle is not rare nor reflective of serious problems.
Further evaluation is only needed if this became a regular problem, the bleeding was heavy, associated with pain, your periods stopped or there was a major change from previous pattern. Also, If you have any pregnancy concerns you should get a test.

In brief: That's OK

Spotting can be caused by various things including stress, changing hormones, infection.
This is not something to worry about.
