Is some slight fetal bleeding normal or is any amount a dangerous indicator?

In brief: Depends

It is typically normal to have a little "streaking" but anything more should at least have you alert your OB and ask if you need to be seen for examination.

In brief: Depends

Technically bleeding during pregnancy does not typically come from the fetus.
Usually bleeding during pregnancy comes from the cervix or placenta. 50% of all pregnant women will have some bleeding in the first trimester. Bleeding in the second and third trimester is more concerning and should be evaluated immediately.
