Sorry if TMI- Post Partum Bleeding? Is this normal?

I am 4 weeks pp and I had quit bleeding around week 2.. just light occasional spotting through week 3. A few days ago, despite trying really hard to wait, my fiance and I had sex. It wasn't rough or anything and fairly quick, however now I am bleeding again. It is almost black in color and a lot heavier than what I had previously had. Is this my period? Or is it still just post-partum bleeding? Should I call my dr...or is this normal?
