Hi Gene: I had bleeding start up about 4 weeks out of surgery and called my surgeon's office. It is "not uncommon" they said, adding that "it's not overly common."
Your situation sounds like mine. Mine worked out fine, although it scared the heck out of me. After weeks of clear urine, I had a little bright red blood one afternoon, then heavy bleeding, then big clots coming out, followed by clear urine since (thank God).
Dealing with bleeding weeks after surgery can freak you out, but I'm sure you're fine. I had those little scabby-looking things too.
Call your doctor though. If you are still passing blood, he or she may want to take a look at it. They can eyeball it and estimate the actual amount of blood.
Best to ya.
