Brief Answer:
Can be a minor issue.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The mild bleeding that you have is less likely to be due to an infection. It can be due to an early period or a mild hormonal imbalance. It is best to wait and see if the bleeding stops on its own.
It is likely to be a minor issue. In case the bleeding happens again after sex then direct examination is needed by a gynecologist.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.

I have recently stopped my anti deppresants so maybe this could be due to the hormones, as my periods dissapeared before i was diagnosed with deppresion
