What could be the reason of bleeding in 8th week of pregnancy?

Hello I had an ultrasound today at 8 weeks. I saw the small baby and they confirmed and showed heartbeat. I was spotting so I was sent for an early ultrasound. Tonight I went to the washroom and was upset to see the spotting streaking has turn into more of bright red blood in toilet and on toilet paper. I do not have cramps and I m not sure going to hospital tonight is the right decision as I just saw the heartbeat today. I m wearing pad but have not soaked through. Thoughts?
