Detailed Answer:
Hi dear and thanks for your query.
There are many causes that can create this issue such as:
1.infection of your collum (cervicitis),but this issue is associated with other symptoms (lower abdominal pain,vaginal discharge)
2.residual endometrium(inner layer of uterus)contractionof your uterus during intercourse can cause spotting
3.vaginal trauma during intercourse
If spotting(light bleeding) repeats for another day ,or another time you have intercourse please get a pelvic examination and Pap smear if you havent done it ater one year of the last .

All the best
