Usually the bleeding will taper off sometime within a week to two weeks after you give birth, but the depo shot might have affected things.
I had extended bleeding after both my deliveries, but I also had some hemorrhaging and problems with anemia so my case is a bit different than yours. My doctor told me it is not normal to still be bleeding bright red at 6-7 weeks and it can cause serious iron deficiency and anemia. I would definitely go see your doctor at this point.
