In brief: Probably ovulation
If you are midcycle and not on oral contraceptives, what you are describing is consistent with ovulatory pain and spotting.
It usually lasts a couple of days. If the pain worsens or doesn't resolve, it would be a good idea to be seen by your physician.

In brief: A variety of causes
Are you on any type of birth control? Midcycle bleeding can commonly occur as a side-effect of any estrogen-progesterone combined birth control: pill, depo shot, patch, rings, iud.
If you are sexually active, stds can sometimes cause this. Make sure you don't leave a tampon in too long. Simple stress can cause irregular periods (dub). It would be a good idea to talk to your obgyn about this.
