May be Anemia: There are so many reason people get dizzy but one of the most common reasons in young female is anemia may be due to menstrual blood loss and lack of adequate iron in in diet which causes anemia. Anemia causes weak, lightheaded and some time dizzy. You may want to check your hemoglobin level.

Need for evaluation: There is insufficient information in your message to provide a meaningful opinion. A proper evaluation would entail more history, physical examination, and may be lab tests. It would be a good idea to see your doctor for an evaluation.
