Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

Light pinkish spotting 6 hours after sex could be due to break in capillary of the vagina due to friction during sex. It can also be due to hormonal imbalance or due to ovulation. Vaginal infections and STD could be another cause.

Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please consult your gynecologist once. Hope this helps. Take care!
