What does spotting look like?

So I recently got a progestorin (sp?) implant in my arm...a couple of months ago. I have had a normal period, though it was a week late, and now I'm due again.

I've never had any sort of spotting before. I understand what it's meant to look like on a pad...but what does spotting look like in a cup? I think I'm getting spotting, but I'm not sure.

There is a small amount of red discolouration in the clear fluid in the bottom of the cup (only a couple of millimeters worth). In addition, there are small amounts of red blood-like something in the vaginal goo/mucus.

Is this what spotting should be in a cup? I had it one morning, and then the next, so I'm guessing it's not just the start of my period.

I'm guessing the spotting is a result of the implanon. I just don't know if it's actually spotting. I left my cup out for today, and going by the colour on my undies it almost looks like a yeast infection...but I'm not entirely sure. I'm gonna leave it a bit on that one.
