How are you doing ?
I agree with your doctor. You don't need to worry . Clindamycin is a simple antibiotic & will never cause bleeding .
May be the bleeding is from the uterus , small erosion or bleeding even you have a hormonal suppression.
Just few drops of blood , which over time may appear brownish or black can just be left alone. Only if this is increasing you will need to meet doctor & even think about a scan
Hope I have clarified our query,do write back if any more queries
All the best
