Welcome to ehealthforum,
If the implantation has occurred and resulted in bleeding due to erosion caused to the tubal wall, there can be mild bleeding. To confirm/rule out ectopic pregnancy, imaging technique is required (USG, CT scan). If worried, visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation, clarification and assistance.
Take care.
