One of the things my midwife said to look out for was spots or flashing lights in your eyes, so yes I would call.

Yes, call for advice.

Likely low blood pressure and while unpleasant nothing to worry about.
Eat and drink regularly, stand up slowly particularly from lying.

Likely low blood pressure- I was the same. Keep yourself very hydrated and take it easy. Midwife told me that if someone in hospital has low blood pressure the first thing they do is hang a bag of fluid. So get yourself a big bottle of water and keep topping up. Oh, and chocolate helps too smile
