Have you had an ultrasound? Thank you.
Some bleeding in early pregnancy is not unusual, but bleeding may also be the first sign of a miscarriage.
The way to know is with an ultrasound. If it shows a heartbeat (usually seen by 6 weeks), then miscarriage is highly unlikely. If there is no heartbeat, then it will be a miscarriage.
In the US, bleeding is a reason to come in early for an ultrasound. I don't know about int he UK, but I'd call and ask.
If it is a miscarriage, there isn't anything that can be done to prevent it. Best wishes.
