In brief: Likely normal

Light vaginal bleeding can persist for several weeks after a delivery.
It is not uncommon for it to occur intermittently. If you are concerned regarding the amount of bleeding or if you are having any vaginal pain, fevers/chills, or any concerning symptoms, see your doctor for evaluation.
