Spotting/Light bleeding two weeks after period...

I just stopped breastfeeding about one month ago after 16 months of nursing. I did not have menstrual cycles while I was breastfeeding. However, prior to my pregnancy I have had a pretty consistent period and I have never spotted between periods.  I started my first menstrual period (since breatfeeding ended)  on May 9th.  It only lasted about 3 days which is shorter than normal for me. However it was normal in the amount of bleeding.  On May 22nd I went to the bathroom and when I wiped it was pink. I wiped again and there was a small amount of clear discharge and pink blood.  I put in a panyliner but it has been very light and mostly only present when I wipe/urinate.  It turned to a brownish red color and is now a red/pink color but not as red as a normal period.  I feel fine with no cramps or anything but I wasn't sure if I need to call the doctor or not. Could this be implantation bleeding? Could it be from hormone imbalance from breastfeeding? Any help would be great!
