Brief Answer:
Spotting

Detailed Answer:
Hi

The bleeding or spotting seen in early pregnancy is not periods.

As soon as pregnancy happens the periods stop totally.

If at all there is bleeding or spotting in first 3 months it is because of threatened abortion. The baby might abort if bleeding is excessive.

I hope your doubt is cleared.
