Yes. If there's no Peak and you have a bleed, it's an interruption to the Basic Infertile Pattern and not the start of a new cycle. The reason for that is because it could be related to ovulation itself, so you abstain and count 3 (Early Day Rule #2). With a true menstruation - one that follows Peak, there is no need to count 3 after.

Here are two sample charts that show non-menstural bleeding episodes.
