Bleeding this early in pregnancy with perisac is not a good sign. It is a sign of threatened abortion.

I recommend :
-complete bed rest as advised.
-blood tests to check for progesterone levels
Supplements if necessary.
-clotting factors may need to be checked
- repeat ultrasound in 2 weeks to check for fetal heart beat.

It is still early to see heart beat so don't worry. I understand your emotions completely. Your concern is genuine. However, try to relax and distract yourself as stress is not good especially now.
Please note that if this pregnancy does not continue, it is not your fault. About 30 percent of all
Pregnancies miscarry due to natural selection (unhealthy fetus)
Majority of women go on to have a healthy baby afterward.
I know this is little consolation now but Pls try to not feel guilty if things don't work out.
Hope this helps and you have a healthy and safe pregnancy.
Wish you good health.
Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with
