May be normal: At your age, it is still not unusual to have irregular periods. However, for peace of mind, if you have not seen a gynecologist for an examination yet, you should do so. The doctor will go over your history and will let you know if it is normal or not and what to do.

Maybe normal, but...: ...you still should check with your doctor. Menstrual pattern and the amount of bleeding are highly variable from one woman to the next. However, any new, unexplained, or increased bleeding should be medically evaluated, so see your doctor soon if this is a change. If this is not a change, it might be normal for you, but your doctor still might recommend occasional blood tests to check for anemia.
