OBGYN 's  Response
Vaginal bleeding in the first trimester of pregnancy can be caused by several different factors. Bleeding affects 20%-30% of all pregnancies. Up to 50% of those who bleed may go on to have a miscarriage (lose the baby). Of even more concern, however, is that about 3% of all pregnancies are ectopic in location (the fetus is not inside the uterus), and vaginal bleeding can be a sign of an ectopic pregnancy. An ectopic pregnancy may be life threatening to the mother. All bleeding associated with early pregnancy should prompt a call to your health care provider for immediate evaluation.
Causes of discharge may be following

Implantation bleeding:
Threatened miscarriage: .
Completed miscarriage:
Incomplete miscarriage
Blighted ovum
Sexual intercourse.

Consult ur doctor and avoid intercourse for few days until scan is done.

as blood supply increases to local genital organs during pregnancy,
by slight friction they can show spotting or blood stained discharge,
so if you are having,
- mild discharge,
-which is not increasing in quantity
- no frank blood
- not associated with pain
then no need to worry,
if it becomes more blood stained and pain occurs you better consult your doctor.
take care.
