Spotting slightly around when

Spotting slightly around when you're period is due is not necessarily a bad sign. In fact, it's pretty common.

Your doctor did everything right - the best way to see how things are progressing is to do an hcg level (although the first one is essentially meaningless) and then do another in 48 hours. What you'll be looking for is a sharp increase (if not a doubling) of numbers from the previous level to the current one. No growth or a dip in numbers often indicates that a pregnancy is not successful.

Keeping my fingers crossed for you!
