Well, there are a couple reasons to have bleeding from the penis. You may have caused some local trauma to the head or the shaft of the penis- like a scrape. As well, there may have been some blood in your urethra (from your urine) which may have come out when you ejaculated or there may have been some blood in your ejaculate.

Not to mention the fact that this may not be really from you at all, but from your partner- and was transferred to your penis..

 

That being said, you should do the following- examine yourself very closely to see if you have any lesions or tears. If you do not, then masturbate and look closely at the ejaculate. If you have any blood in the ejaculate or urine or if you have any lesions on your penis, you need to be seen by a physician for treatment. If this resolves, I would just keep a close eye on it and see if it occurs again...
