I think you should go in and get checked :D
It could be labour but go for a medical opinion.

Was there any mucous with it? It could have been your bloody show. Or if you have been checked or had sex recently it could be from that. But if you are concerned call your doc.

I was told bright red is something to get checked out by my ob and triage nurses

My midwife told me that bright red blood is a concern it is a sign of labor call or go to hospital !

just a smear is likely just from making cervical changes. We tell them to come in if they have to wear a pad and change it. A smear when you wipe isn't concerning.

Yeah, that could be the mucus plug. Better safe then sorry and possible labor dust!
