It may be a urinary tract infection and not "period" blood. The vulva and the urethra are located close together in the dog and it is difficult to distinguish the cause of the bleeding.
Please bring a fresh urine sample to the vet to make sure that she doesn't have a urinary tract infection. This is not a costly test. And many antibiotics that effectively treat urinary tract infections are not expensive.
There is a blood test that can test your dog's hormones to see if she is indeed spayed. This test is more costly so please have the test for the urinary tract infection first to save money.
