Hi so yesterday my boyfriend and we're fooling around and he fingered me. When got home I noticed bright red blood after urinating when I wiped. This didn't concern me that much because I'm close to having my period anyway. But usually my menstruation blood isn't this color. Should I be concerned?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The bleeding could suggest chances of hymen rupture, or vaginal/cervix injury due to fingering. If the fingers has semen or pre-cum (and if you were during fertile days), you can be at risk for pregnancy. Wait and watch for your periods. If pregnancy gets ruled out, and if you are not ready for pregnancy, but intend to remain sexually active, you should consider visiting your gynecologist to get started on suitable regular birth control measures to be protected (after your periods). Be regular with birth control use as instructed. Avoid having unprotected sexual contact if you are not ready for pregnancy.
Take care.
