In brief: Couple things

It could be some breakthrough bleeding before your cycle, which does happen on occasion.
However, if the bleeding is lighter than usual and you are not on birth control and sexually active, this could be an early pregnancy and implantation bleeding. If not pregnant and it happens rarely don't be too concerned. If it happens more frequently get evaluated.
