Bleeding for six days at eight weeks pregnant


Q: I am currently 8 weeks pregnant.At 6 weeks I had some spotting so was given an early scan which showed a normal pregnancy with cardiac activity.
At 7 weeks 2 days I started bleeding so I called my early pregnancy unit but was told that because It was no heavier than a normal period,I wasn't passing clots and having no pain I wouldn't need any tests and only needed to be re assessed if my symptoms got significantly worse.
I'm now 8 weeks 1 day and have been bleeding for 6 days(still no clots or pain)
Should I be worried?
Thank you
