Probably normal: Sounds pretty normal. Dark reddish discharge is blood that has had some time to form a clot. Active bleeding is bright red the dark stuff is older blood. If this isn't causing a problem for you I wouldn't worry about it. If its a problem check with your gynecologist.

Unclear question: Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.
