In brief: See a doctor

Likely this is okay and is due to a lack of estrogen in the vagina causing atrophy, that is---thinner skin of the vagina that is more sensitive and occasionally bleeds as well.
However, any postmenopausal vaginal bleeding needs to be evaluated by a physician to make sure there are no cancerous or precancerous reasons for this. If it is local to the vagina, your doctor may prescribe some estrogen.
