Brief Answer:
You should visit her gynecologist.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The mild spotting at 14 weeks is not normal. This can happen due to a low lying placenta. She needs a complete bed rest and it is best to consult your gynecologist for ultrasound scan and proper treatment to stop any further bleeding.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
