Hello and welcome to HCM,     
I am Dr Nilajkumar a consultant gynecologist and I will be helping you in your queries.

There are 2 possibilities in your case.
1. This is an abortion. However it is too early to detect it by an ultrasound . A blood beta HCG level may be helpful.
2. This is implantation bleed. Occurs when the baby attaches to the mother. It is normal and does not require any treatment and stops by itself.

So please get a blood test and start progesterone, folic acid and injection HCG after meeting your doctor as soon as possible to help continue the pregnancy in case of a threatened abortion.

Hope this was helpful.
Take care and feel free to ask any further queries.
Thanks for using HCM.
