Blood after removal?

Hey folks - popping in for a quick question. I got a Mooncup (UK) size B recently, and started using it while having some spotting just as my period started. I've noticed that while the spotting collected in the cup is how I'd expect (dark brownish, old blood), when I remove the cup, I get a small gush of BRIGHT RED blood every single time. There's no obvious pain associated with it (aside from the discomfort of removal), but it's a little alarming - is there something wrong, or is it just the suction pulling some of the soon-to-be-shed blood out? Sorry for the graphic-ness! I'm moderately sure there's nothing amiss but I wanted to get the opinion of you lovely peeps.
