Welcome to this forum.
I must say you that the misoprostol is not the drug which can act alone for an abortion. You need another medicine mifepristone for this. However, the bleeding is slight and you are not sure about the completeness. Nobody can,.as it's a very early pregnancy. What you can do, just wait for few days and after two weeks go for a scan. That's the way to say whether the process is complete or not.
Hope I can address your query. Please visit your doctor if there is any further confusion as without a clinical examination it is not possible to opine through an online medical forum.
