Welcome to ehealthforum,
If the ultrasound scan done has proved that the pregnancy is intrauterine and not ectopic, you should relax. The persistence of spotting/bleeding could be due to decidual bleed if it occurs during your expected period time (few women can experience period like bleeding during expected period time during first few months of pregnancy which is also known as Decidual bleeding). If it does not correspond to your usual period time, it could indicate other problems. In this case, you should consider getting serial HCG levels estimated. Doubling up of the hormone levels in 48-72 hours will show that pregnancy is going on smoothly. If levels are not adequate, then external hormonal supplements would be considered to be started to help you in preventing miscarriage/threatened abortion. A repeat ultrasound scan done will help to know if pregnancy is viable, and will also rule out retroplacental bleeding, or placental separation, low lying placenta etc. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
