I would say they need to be looking into what is causing this bleeding surely? Did they not give you any indication when you went for either of these scans??
My friend had something similar and it was related to placenta previa: where the placenta attaches itself close to the opening of the cerfix and causes bleeding. The are different types of previa and this can ccur in roughly 1 in 200 pregnancies. It is not always a problem, however, and in her case righted itslef but any bleeding should always be investigated I think.
If I were you I would ask for more information, for piece of mind if nothing else.
Whatever happens, I wish you well and hope your little one contiues to grow big and strong.
