In brief: Spotting

That is not unusual.
It should go away in a few days. If it persists, see your gynecologist for a follow up visit.

In brief: Possibly

Ask your gynecologist or infertility surgeon whether if they used an uterine manipulator. These manipulators can cause some spotting after surgery for a few days.
As long as there's not intense pain and fever, what you're describing is probably normal.
