In brief: There

There are many reasons to have spotting in early pregnancy.
It can signal that the pregnancy is not healthy or perhaps in the wrong location (tubes), but more commonly changes in blood flow to your reproductive organs makes them fragile and prone to bleed spontaneously or after sex. If it is very light and stops, then do not worry about it, but if it persists or gets heavier call your dr's office and try to move your appointment up or at least request that they give you an order for an ultrasound to check that your pregnancy is ok. Hope this helps.
