Is bleeding something to be concerned about?

I haven't had intercourse yet, but my boyfriend and I tried dry humping and fingering and it may have been a little aggressive. We didn't really know what to do. Two hours later, I had blood in my underwear, but a day later, there's no blood. Is there something wrong with me/am I okay? Or is it normal to bleed after some "sexual" activity, even if it's not intercourse?

Hello and thank you for sharing your question.
The vaginal bleeding in this scenario is unrelated to the "sexual activity" you had.
Spotting can happen between periods and it usually indicates slight hormonal imbalances. It is no cause for alarm.
Some girls experience bleeding during the first time of having intercourse, others do not. This bleeding occurs when the cervix is contacted. But fingering is not deep enough for this the happen.
