was this appropriate

I work in an office that shares an office with a group of guys. The guy who is in charge of that office is sort of a dick, or at least I've always gotten that vibe. There is one bathroom and I am the only woman in the office. I used the bathroom once in the morning.

Later on I went back to use the bathroom again and found the toilet cover closed with a typed out sign taped to the cover that said "clean up your blood." I opened the cover and saw that there was a tiny drop of blood on the corner of the toilet cover (not the seat but the cover. I'm not sure how it got there and would have never noticed had he not pointed it out). I didn't realize at the time. Of course I always check after I use the toilet.
Several people had used the bathroom since me and I felt so embarrassed that he called attention to it. I cleaned it up and quietly left the bathroom and then had to pass both offices. I put two and two together and realized it was the male boss of the other company who had left it for me (I had seen him printing out a sheet earlier). I confided in another male coworker about what happened and told him I felt like this guy was being a dick and he said to me, "no, you should really clean up after yourself." I tried to explain to him that it was an accident.
Was this really fair?
