in early pregnancy some amount of spotting can be seen because of causes like,
- gestational sac while getting embedded in uterus wall can damage some blood vessels leading to spotting,
some women may have bleeding on expected day of periods even in pregnancy,
increased blood supply to local organs can cause spotting even on mild friction.
so if you are not symptoms like pain abdomen etc no need to bother but if your spotting increases or pain arises consult your doctor immediately.
take care.
