Bleeding in early pregnancy

Im 12 weeks today and got my first scan tomorrow.
I woke up this morning to go to the toilet and when I wiped I had blood in my discharge.
Is this something to be worried about? I haven’t been in any serious pain just really slight stomach ache.
Ive been recently put on Iron tablets as-well so don’t know if its anything to do with that.
I took a photo of it (TMI) sorry.

Ive got work in half an hour and worried.

Sorry you're going through this OP. How did the rest of your day go? Hopefully no more bleeding. I know any bleeding is terrifying in pregnancy, but I read over and over again how common it is, and how increased blood flow to the general area can cause bleeding from cervix etc.

It's great you've got your scan tomorrow so you don't have to wait long to put your mind at ease. Fingers crossed for you, look after yourself x

I havnt bled since but I did get sent home from work so just relaxed and had a nap.
I phoned the midwife and she said to just rest and not to worry too much but if it is a miscarriage then its going to happen.

I just really scared then happy about my scan now, im just thinking the worst is going to happen sad
