Is it wrong that I bled a lot the first time I had sex???

I had sex for the first time two days ago, and I figured I wouldn't notice when he "popped my cherry". Although the next thing I know there's blood everywhere :/. He had a really hard time getting in me which was really frustrating. It took forever for him to finally be able to get it in and get going. Could it have been I was nervous since it was my first so I was unconsciously contracting my PC muscles making it harder for him to enter me?
--Thank You!

Bleeding isn't the norm, but it's also not abnormal. From Scarleteen's First Intercourse 101:

You may also bleed during first intercourse, and even during the next few times you try it, even though based on the data we have on it, a majority of women do NOT bleed with first intercourse. If you're well lubricated, and your partner goes slow, that will likely be minimal or may not happen at all. But during the first times, it happens commonly enough that you might want to have a menstrual pad handy, just in case. Bleeding doesn't mean anything has been damaged, but simply that some tissue has been stretched or abraded, tissue that with minor abrasion, tends to heal fine by itself. Nothing is wrong if bleeding does not happen: some women have some bleeding or spotting with first intercourse or other kinds of vaginal entry, while others do not.
