In brief: Spotting

I suspect you have ovulatory bleeding.
Most of the time ovulation occurs between day 11 and 21. This may vary from month to month. Ovulatory bleeding is due to hormones which causes the egg follicle to rupture or to an increase in estrogen. The spotting is brownish or pinkish not red. Intercourse at the time of spotting and for a few days after increases your chance of pregnancy.
