Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

Mucus discharge and bleeding mid cycle can be due to ovulation. The date of ovulation can vary by 2-3 days. So you could have ovulated.

The other possibility is that frictional injury due to intercourse caused the bleed. You can chart your basal body temperature and see if they dip over next few days. If the temperature dips, chances of pregnancy are less. Hope this helps. Take care!
