Second opinion] I'm a 59 year overweight postmenopausal

Second opinion] I'm a 59 year overweight postmenopausal woman. I havent had a period in 7 years. I've been having pelvic pains so I went to NP because I couldn't get into regular gyno till July 6 for my annual. NP did pelvic exam and did a transvaginal ultrasound. I found out I have a lining of 5mm. It has only been 4 days since exam. I haven't had any bleeding but did have some blood when I wiped the lubrication away after exam. Is this normal to have some bleeding after a exam like this and do you think I will have to do a biospyI haven't had sex for years and this exam was painful. The NP said the gyno would make the decision but they recommend the guideline to be 7 before doing a biopsy nonbleeding.
