Thanks for your question.
This is most likely to represent a terminal part of your period & is likely to settle in 2-3 days. If this continues beyond this time you should see a doctor. preferably a Gynecologist to find out the cause of this abnormal bleeding.
If you are not on a reliable birth control you must also exclude pregnancy.
If cramping is sever you must go to the hospital as soon as possible as this may represent an early pregnancy complication like ectopic pregnancy.
Wish you good health.

As it is your last day of your period and you had intercourse that will cause the muscle to contract and cause you little cramps and even spotting nothing to worry about it much.If it happens on the day your are not having periods then you have to worry a little as postcoital bleeding indicates infection or cervicitis.So as for now you have nothing to worry much about it.Thank you.

It is normal, due to end of period and irritation produced by intercourse there might be having bleeding.
It will stop soon.
