Post Partum Spotting/Bleeding

I had my first baby on January 10th of this year. Vaginal birth, 2nd degree tear with some stitches and I'd stopped bleeding around week 4 or 5. For the last month or so, however, I have been spotting daily. Not enough to make it worth using a pad, but enough to be annoying. And then yesterday I went to the bathroom and wiped and wiped and wiped because there was bright red blood on the toilet paper. Like the kind you'd find if you'd cut yourself, not like period blood. However there's no pain or cut that I can find. Sometimes I'm still a little sore from where I tore, and I've only had sex with the hubby twice since baby was born (much to both of our disappointment, it's just so dry!). I'm not "breastfeeding" per se, but I am pumping exclusively. She never learned to nurse so I just pump. Has anyone spotted this long before starting their first post partum period? Is this something worth seeing my obgyn about or should I just deal with the annoyance?
