Usually CD1 is the first day of actual flow following ovulation. Flow = when you need more than a pantyliner to deal with it. Color is irrelevant.

For example, when ovulation hasn't been confirmed yet, bleeding isn't the start of a new cycle because it could be ovulation bleeding. Most NFP charting systems allow you to enter bleeding without starting a new cycle when that happens, but FF just automatically starts a new cycle every time there is bleeding.

In your case, since it stopped it obviously wasn't AF but related to the endo. To trick FF, putting spotting is fine even if it was more than that. You may want to make a note of what actually happened though, it could be relevant to your doctor.
