Januvia may be associated with the post menopausal bleeding in small number of women. So this may be the reason.

Your doctor may refer you to the gynecologist for the exam and pelvic ultrasound, for the precaution. It to rule out atrophic vaginitis (vaginal inflammation due to hormonal aberrations), which is one of the commonest cause of postmenopausal bleeding.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
