I think you are doing the right thing already by getting the scan. I'm sure the doctor wants to rule out any serious problem that might need immediate attention - the reason they checked for ectoptic pregnancy. You will need to consult with your doctor after the scan to see what they learn. I'm sorry I can't say what is wrong but your provider who has your history and the test results should be able to advise you soon. Sometimes clots just happen but it's best to find out for sure.
In some cases a heavy bleeding episode is just a one time event with things going back to normal again. Concern is greater if this occurs month after month. Anemia could result from the heavy bleeding.
