Hi there - Congratulations on your pregnancy:)  Blood is always kinda scary. And while bleeding is not normal during pregnancy, it's common.  So this is what it could be -- it could be implantation bleeding, it could be cervical spotting, or it could be the start of a miscarriage.

 What do you need to do now? If it were me, and I were you -- I would call my OBGYN and inform them you have a positive pregnancy test, and if you haven't had a beta pregancy test (blood test) that you'd like to have a beta pregnancy test as soon as possible along with a P4 (progesterone) test.

 In the meantime, no sex, no tampons, no swimming, no douching, no heavy lifting.  Just rest and make sure you are drinking 96 ounces of water a day.

My best to you!
