Thanks for posting your query.
The mild spotting that you had after a PAP smear is likely to be due to mild injury in the area due to a soft cervix during the pregnancy.
This spotting is not worrisome. Just watch for next few for the spotting to stop spontaneously. In case it is persistent then you need to consult your gynecologist for further investigations and ultrasound scan.
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.

Thanks for writing again.
Since all your pregnancy symptoms are intact, there is no need to worry. This spotting will subside on its own without any treatment.
Hope my answer is helpful.
