You most certainly do. If you suspect you've had or may be having a miscarriage, please seek medical help immediately.

Just FYI, there are three important reasons for that:

1) To make sure you're okay, and
2) To make sure you HAVE had a miscarriage and are NOT still pregnant, and
3) To make sure if you did miscarry that you have expelled all of the fetal tissue. Sometimes, miscarriages are incomplete, and in those cases, the remaining tissue needs to be removed.

Well, not necessarily fluids, but yes, tissue that is left in the uterus after a miscarriage can cause problems - after all, it was once living tissue and once dead, must begin to decompose. This is one of the reasons listed by Miz Scarlet above that anyone who suspects miscarriage needs an examination by a doctor.
