It feels like mild period cramps but I shouldn't be started my period for another 2 weeks? Is this normal? What could it be?

Mittleschmerz: Your cramps may be a sign of you ovulating. Translated mittleschmerz means pain in the middle. Ibuprofen may help or a warm bottle or a heating pad set on low
