This answer was rated:

I have some slight bleeding / one clot 4 days after smear (no bleeding for the first two days)
JA: How long have you dealt with the bleeding? Have you experienced this in the past?
Customer: No this has been my first smear test
JA: Got it. When was your last smear test or pelvic exam? Any irregular results from past exams?
Customer: My smear test was monday, this was my first one so I've not had any results yet
JA: Thank you so much for your time. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: No nothing!

Thank you

Mild bleeding and clot can be normal after pap smear.

The blood vessels are irritated --can cause such bleeding within a week.

Ah okay, thank you. So even though I didn't have bleeding for the first day it has just started yesterday/today

Yes this is still normal --does not suggest anything concerning.
