Thanks for posting your query.
The bleeding in the early pregnancy like you are having can be due to an early miscarriage or an ectopic pregnancy or a threatened abortion.
In this situation, you should get blood test for beta-HCG along with Trans Vaginal Sonography (TVS scan) to get detailed picture.

Till then strict bed rest is required. You can get beta Hcg levels done and repeat them after 72 hrs , if they are decreasing means it is a case of missed abortion and if increasing means it is going to show positive results on scan.
You also need progesterone supplements like susten and pause. Adding inj HCG 5000 IU bi-weekly under your doctor's guidance and prescription will also help. Do not forget to take folic acid supplements. I hope you have got your other investigations done like thyroid profile , torch test etc.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
