Hello and welcome to HCM,

Pinkish discharge after periods may be a continuation of the menstrual cycles.
Bloating occurs due to effect of progesterone.
Cramping sensation occurs due to contractions of the uterus.
You need to observe your menstrual cycles for few more months.
A variation in duration and frequency of menstrual cycle is normal in healthy cycles.
Bloating and cramping are common during the pre-menstrual period.
These symptoms occur under the influence of progesterone.
Progesterone level is high during pre=menstrual period.
So, don't worry and observe the cycles for some more time.
If the symptoms are troublesome and irregularity is constantly present, you need to visit your gynecologist for clinical examination, investigations and appropriate management.

Thanks and take care
