I actually had quite a bit of bleeding in my first trimester and into my second trimester. Apparently, some bleeding is considered "normal" as long as you aren't soaking more than a pad an hour(!). I would definitely have your doctor check it out, though. I was very worried for the first several weeks that it went on--continuous light bleeding, sometimes pantyliners weren't enough--and then I just started to get annoyed by it. It was like having a light period for two months straight. At times it was bright red, not brown, and still, I was told, "don't worry, it's normal." At any rate, doctors couldn't find the source of it on ultrasound though they suspected there was a leaky blood vessel in one of the placentas (I'm having twins). They did tell me that it was a good thing they couldn't find the source/reason b/c if they could, the reason wouldn't be good. So...eventually, it slowed down and then just stopped and that was it.
I know it's very very nervewracking to have any sort of spotting or bleeding, but if the docs are telling you it's fine, it probably is. Definitely see your doctor about it, and definitely report any changes, but try not to worry too much. I'm now 32 weeks, and though I've had other issues throughout the pregnancy, there haven't been any ill-effects due to the bleeding. Hang in there!!!
