Thanks for your query.
It appears as if you have had a subchorionic bleed..
The chorion and amnion are the membranes which surround the baby and further develop into the placenta and provide support for the growing pregnancy.
If there is bleeding in these tissues there is a danger of miscarriage.
You should take appropriate medicines for supporting the baby as advised by your obstetrician.
Take rest, avoid dehydration.
Avoid intercourse and stress.
Only a review scan will show if the bleeding has stopped or progressed.
ALl the best.
