Welcome to ehealthforum,
The morning after pill works if taken within 72 hours of the unprotected intercourse. The slight bleeding that you are having could be the effect of teh pill itself. If you have cramps or if the bleeding becomes heavy, then you should consult your gynecologist.
Wait for your periods to start, if they get delayed, or if the bleeding is abnormal, then an examination and further tests would be needed. Meet your healthcare provider/gynecologist.
Take care.
