Cramping your style: intrstinal symptoms during menses may be hormonal in nature. Or may signal ovarian or endometriosis problems. Recomend a pelvic us and gynecological consultation

It depends: It depends if this continues on for a couple more days and if it gets worse over time. Cramping and pain are common symptoms of menstrual cramps and perhaps this is just a bad month. But if you have vaginal discharge that is not normal (white, odor, cream in color), have fevers, or painful urinations then yes you should see a physician for a check up.
