In brief: Implantation

Implantation bleeding is characterized by spotting; this occurs when the embryo implants in the uterus.
However some women have more than spotting and the color can vary. Implantation bleeding typically occurs about a week after conception. I recommend you take an early prediction pregnancy test. If it is negative wait for your next period, and if you are late then repeat the test. Best of luck.
