What causes pink vaginal discharge after intercourse?

I am a 61yo female. I just became sexually active again after 8 years. I ve had some pinkish/red blood discharge from my vagina following sex. Not a flow of blood, and the color is not bright red. There is no odor, and I am STD-free. No yeast infection, no UTI.

The causes for the issue
1.     Infection in the vagina can be the cause, unhygienic sex practice, use of public toilet
2.     Dryness – infection can cause dryness giving injury to the vaginal wall, improper foreplay can cause dry sex causing infection, dehydration due to decrease water intake or diabetes can cause dry sex and injure vagina, as age advances vaginal secretion will decrease causing painful sex or vaginal injury, hormonal imbalance
3.     Forceful sex can cause injury
4.     Benign or malignant polyp
5.     Use of sex toys can injure the vaginal wall
6.     Vaginismus - anxiety during sex can cause contraction of the vaginal wall and cause painful sex
7.     Eczema
8.     Deep penetration during sex can cause vaginal wall injury.
