Does painless contraction and pink spotting mean start of labor ?

Hi, Im 39 weeks pregnant and 2 days. Ive been having contractions but they do not hurt, although i have them almost every 20 minutes. I also had a pink spotting today. It wasnt blood or mucousy though, just a pink tinge on the toilet paper. Could this be the start of labor or should I be worried?
