How much bleeding?: "gushing" of blood can be common with menstrual cycles.. If you are bleeding heavier than usual, and soaking through more than 1 pad an hour, you need to be seen in the emergency room for evaluation. Otherwise, if the menstrual cycle does not lighten up on its own in several days, see your gynecologist.

Black = old blood : The color of the blood reflects how long the blood has been sitting inside your uterus or at the back of your vagina. Red is new. Brown or black blood is older and the blood products have started to break down. Some irregular bleeding like this from time to time is very common and usually resolves on its own in a few days to weeks.

You're okay: At your age, it's normal for their to be some fluxuations in your period. You are at an appropriate weight so that isn't the problem. Sometimes this can be due to changes in hormones from your ovaries. If you want to stop the breakthrough bleeding, consider a birth control. That will likely solve the problem. Also, the abnormal bleeding may correct on it's own as well. Hope that helps!
