I thought my period finished yesterday and I had unprotected sex today after that I have had bright red blood and small clots with minor cramps?

In brief: Post coital bleed

It could just be some residual menstrual flow that hadn't passed yet, but more commonly bright red blood right after sex is from a friable cervix.
Friable means bleeds easily when touched. Cramps can also just be from sex itself. Semen has a chemical in it called prostaglandins and that causes uterine cramping
