Probably nothing: Menstrual cycles can be irregular due to many factors (stress, diet changes, weight loss or gain, medications, strenuous exercise, etc). Having an occasional period that is not when expected is fine. Keep a calendar of when you have bleeding and menstrual symptoms (breast tenderness, cramping, etc). You will likely see some variations.

Fibroids/polyps?: If you see a doctor for heavy periods, they will want to make sure that you don't have any fibroids (usually benign tumors of the uterus) or polyps (growths of tissue from the uterine lining). If you have always had heavy periods, you may want to make sure you don't have a bleeding problem in general. Sometimes there is no definite cause and treatments to make periods lighter can help.

Get seen: If this persists, only a gynecologist can make the diagnosis. Although "dysfunctional uterine bleeding" is often caused by glitches in the complex interplay of hormones, it is very important that this not be ignored because of the possibility of cancer. A polyp or a fibroids under the lining of the womb are two of several other possible causes.

Irregular bleed: 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.
