It is good that the cervixi s tightly closed at 8 weeks.
If you have bleeding or pain, it would be necessary to see your doctor.

Not sure whether a tight cervix in a good or bad thing, but in the first trimester any form of spotting or bleeding is a cause for concern and you must be seen by a doctor as soon as is possible:)
