as blood supply increases to the local organs in pregnancy, examination may cause little bit of spotting but prolonged spotting and mainly 3cm dilatation of cervix with presence of contractions may be an indication of onset of labor pains,
so if contractions progress and spotting continues better to consult gynecologist as early as possible.
take care.
