Menstrual : Menstrual irregularities are often associated with not ovulating. This is sometimes caused by a cyst, particularly if your periods are regular as a rule. There are other causes of mid cycle bleeding like fibroids, polyps and tumors. If it persists you should have it evaluated with an exam and possibly ultrasound.

Probably normal: Each month when you ovulate, there is a cyst on one of your ovaries at least 2 CM in dia. That cyst starts to develope while you are having your period, and continues to enlarge until you ovulate - in your case about 10 or 12 days after your last period started. 14 days later, if you don't conceive, you will start your next period. That cyst may enlarge, up to 6 or 8 CM and may cause your cramps.

Pregnant: If you're sexually active, you'll have to rule out pregnancy. Purchase and perform a home pregnancy test. They turn positive at about the time you're one week late.
