Usually the content approval workflow fires when a major version of the file is published. In your case , it seems you have enabled versioning to create major versions only. This will create a new version every time you upload or make changes to documents. Try enable versioning with minor versions in the document library.
I think the solution is quite simple. Check the document's version in the workflow, and do not execute the approval process if it is 1.0.
