There is usually a harmless explanation for this (local irritation, dryness etc.) however post-menopausal vaginal bleeding always merits further investigation to ensure that the womb lining (endometrium) is healthy.

I advise you to attend your GP at your earliest convenience and they will arrange for a the appropriate investigation (hysteroscopy) to be carried out at the hospital.
