Hi, thanks for using HCM.

Usually implantation bleeding is very minimal like a spotting seen for a day or two. As you are having minimal bleed could be due to implantation, difficult to decide on type of bleeding. confirmation can be done pregnancy test.

As you are planing for conception :
Fertile period in a cycle of 28 day duration is from 10th day to 18th day.
Usually ovulation happens 14 days prior to your next cycle. So difficult to predict exact day of ovulation.
If you have regular cycle plan to have intercourse around day of ovulation.
Your cervical mucous changes during your fertile period becoming more slippery, wet and clear - it's often described as having the look and feel of uncooked egg whites - indicating ovulation.

Few tips to increase conception rates:
Avoiding additional lubricants during sex.
Choosing a sexual position that encourages deep penetration.
Leaving the penis in the vagina until it goes soft after ejaculation.
After sex, you can increase your chances of conception by lying flat for half an hour after sex.
Being in the healthy weight range
To optimize conception, your partner should ideally avoid ejaculation for 2 -3 days before your fertile period to increase his sperm count.

Hope this helps you.
