In brief: Common but...

While common to have some spotting, it could signal a more serious issue.
Be sure to schedule prenatal care right away.

In brief: Yes

Bleeding from implantation, sensitive cervix, and from beneath the placenta are common causes.
Of course, some bleeding is a sign of more ominous things like miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy, so a thorough evaluation is indicated, especially for persistent and/or measurable bleeding.
