In brief: Seems a little long
Some women get vaginal bleeding after a pap smear but it usually only lasts for 1-2 days.
If you have bleeding longer than that, call your doctor/np to let them know.

In brief: Possible
Most women will have some slight spotting after a pap smear - it would be unusual to bleed for 4 days, but that could be possible and would be more likely if there were a problem with the cervix.
