Probably normal: It is common to have some light bleeding or spotting around the time of ovulation. You would be near that time now. If you start your period in two weeks, you will know that the spotting/bleeding was due to ovulation.

Irregular period: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections ; hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test . There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit.
