It is quite normal to bleed after having an IUD taken out. Your next period should normally have come on time. Periods can be delayed or irregular due to many causes because of hormonal imbalance. If your pregnancy test is negative, I would advice you to just wait. You should get your periods soon.
If you have had previously irregular periods, see your doctor who may be able to give you medication to help regularize your periods.
Best wishes.
