Bright red blood on the tissue on wiping post periods. What could this be?

A week after my period, I noted there was bright red blood on the tissue after I wiped. I noted there was no blood in my urine . I thought maybe I was spotting, so I grabbed a liner. The next day, it had only a little residue on it, and when I wiped it was a brownish color. The day afterwards, there was only a hint of pink blood on the tissue paper. And today it is the same, just a small bit. What could this be?

Thanks for the query.
In case of menstrual cycle with around 21 days duration that can be ovulatory bleeding.
It can be because of lesions like cervical erosion, polyps etc.
Hormonal fluctuation can cause menstrual irregularities like irregular shedding etc which can cause inter menstrual spotting.
If you are on contraceptive measures that could be breakthrough bleeding.
So if the bleeding occurs again better to get examined once.

Take care.
