Blood spots after period?

My period ended about a week ago and there has not been spotting until yesterday. this has never happened to me before. Why is there brown/red secretions still randomly appearing if my period ended a week ago?

Brown discharge is old blood. It may just be that your body is expelling it or it could be a sign of infection. Just watch to look for itching, different colored discharge, or a weird smell.

any itching, if it itches really bad all the time, it may be a sign of infection. Smell would be a "fishy" smell.

but if I do not have those symptoms, what else could it be?

Hormones can do a lot of weird things to our bodies. The brown spotting is just your body expelling old blood.
