Spotting while preg

Hi Doc

I am 6 weeks pregnant and yesterday and today have experienced blood spotting - I am not bleeding heavily, just sort of drops of blood. Its a bit worrying...Is this "dangerous"? Should I rush to a hospital? If I have a miscarriage, will they need to do a D&C at 6 weeks? I am taking it easy with rest etc. I dont have any pain.

Thanks for your time!!

Dear afraid
It sometimes happen early in pregnancy but you should see your gyne as soon as possible as you may need hormonal supplements to prevent a miscarriage.
