Is it normal to have heavy spotting with red streak in clear white mucus and sometimes brown 2 weeks before period?

No: 2 weeks before a period is mid-cycle. You can have implantation bleeding after ovulation and fertilization, so if you are 7-10 days late on period, please check a urine pregnancy test. If you check any sooner, the results will not be reliable
