Diva cup....are leaks normal?

 Im currently using my new Diva cup for the first time and its been great so far! I absolutely love it and the freedom of being able to almost forget im on my period. The only two minor problems i'm encountering are removal and a bit of leaking. The removal part isn't too bad. I'm learning to fold it on the way out so that it does not hurt as much. But the leaking part is what i'm concerned about. Its not exactly leaking per se. And Its not bad to the point that i need to wear a PAD for back up . but whenever i wipe, there is always a bit of blood on the tissue. When I remove the cup, its always full, so i dont think i'm misplacing it. I'm on day 5 of my period and since the first day i have been wearing a panty liner in case there is any drippage since i'm still getting used to the cup. But I'm finding that no matter what fold i use, i still have this sort of minor leaking. Usually it just shows up as a spot or 2 on my pantyliner, but there is always some blood when I wipe.

I'm just wondering if this is normal and happens to everyone else or if maybe i'm doing something wrong. I figured with the cup, i wouldn't have to worry about wearing anything else like pantyliners and much less ruining underwear anymore, but i'm afraid to not wear a panty liner as I always get a bit of blood on it. Any tips or ideas as to why this is happening??? I love my cup otherwise.....Help!!
