Brief Answer:
Abortion has likely occured

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
After taking medical abortion, bleeding with clots can occur from one to seven days, depending upon the gestational age at which the abortion is taken.
If there was heavy bleeding with clots, abortion has likely occurred and there is no need to take repeat dose.
You can get an ultrasound done to confirm the abortion.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Regards
