Welcome to ehealthforum,
Bleeding occurring around your ovulation time could be a definite indication for ovulation (suggesting the egg release from ovary). If you have been sexually active without protection around your ovulation time, then the bleeding/spotting within 6-12 days of ovulation (or a few days before your next period) could indicate possible implantation bleeding. Wait and watch for your next periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet.
