Hi Anonymous,

Congratulations on your pregnancy!

During your first trimester it is common to experience light bleeding or spotting. However, it is also a high risk period so any bleeding should be reported to your doctor for proper follow up. Please contact your OB/GYN as soon as possible to see if s/he can see you today. 

Best of luck,
