Your hormones: are likely in flux for whatever reason, and you would need to be patient to see if things would settle down. Menstrual fluctuations are affected by many different factors, including nutrition, psychological state of mind, stress, infections/ illnesses, etc. If things continue to be irregular or unpredictable in the next couple of months, go see a family or GYN physician for proper diagnosis.

You : You are 48 years old and have developed menstrual irregularities. Premenopause or perimenopause usually occurs between ages 45 to 55. Your menstrual periods can be lighter or heavier. Your menses might last longer or fewer days than what has been normal for you. It may not come regularly. Possible symptoms can include: hot flashes, problems sleeping, fatigue, irritability, depressed mood, thinner or more dry vagina and poorer memory. I recommend that you see your obstetrician so that you can be reassured when the reason for your menstrual changes is confirmed.

Unsure: If it only happened one time, you likely did not ovulate as usual. Not releasing an egg each month can make your periods irregular. It is normal for most women, not on birth control, to have this happen 1-2 times per year. If it happens each month and your periods are always irregular, you should see your doctor in order to determine the cause.

Menses: There are a number of potential causes of this type of bleeding. As a woman grows older and nears the menopause menses get lighter and lighter, and may include spotting. Do you have any symptoms of menopause like hot flushes and night sweats, vaginal dryness? Pregnancy can also cause this type of bleeding.
