A pink or reddish tinge means some blood in the semen. Usually that's from benign causes, such as a ruptured blood vessel. However, occasionally it can be due to cancer, such as prostate cancer.

I would recommend that you see your doctor for evaluation.

Your prostate will be checked, as well as a PSA. Possibly a biopsy will be taken.

If all is normal, your doctor will probably give it some time to see whether the blood occurs again. It may never. Best wishes.
