If you are very concerned you should be going to your OB/GYN, but I don't think that it sounds that bad. It is common for women to develop spotting in between periods, also another thought is that you could of gotten a small rip, tear, cut from either the fingering or the intercourse. If you get new symptoms like heavier bleeding or odor or something else abnormal then I would suggest checking it further. But be cautious of whether or not you develop pain, odor, heavier bleeding or any other symptoms that may make it seem like it could be an infection, or something worse! Also you can have bleeding or spotting during the first month or so of pregnancy.
