In brief: Yes
The cervix is very friable during pregnancy, so a day or two of spotting after a pap smear is commonly found and is not worrisome.

In brief: Yes
A small amount of bleeding is not unusual and is the result of normal changes that occur in the cervix with pregnancy that make it more susceptible to bleeding after a pap.
Heavy bleeding with cramping is not normal and should be evaluated further.
