Brief Answer:
Needs an ultrasound scan.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.

A mild bleeding during early pregnancy spotting after positive pregnancy test could be due to--

1. Implantation bleed which is mostly only spotting and last only for few days

2. Blighted ovum or missed abortion in which case there will be a longer bout of bleeding and a negative pregnancy test after a few weeks

3. Ectopic pregnency with nonviable embryo and withdrawal bleeding following that.

You can do a repeat pregnancy test and an abdominal ultrasound which will be able to guide you to the viablity of the fetus and the position of the gestational sac. Depending on these your obstetritian will be able to guide you to the further course of treatment and management.

Please feel free to discuss further. I'll be glad to answer the follow-up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.

Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
