Could be normal, : however an exam with your doctor is the best next step.

Not a concern : When your period is light it will be longer before you notice it and the blood will be darker. Menstrual flow can change a lot from month to month, but heavier bleeding is a much bigger concern. What you are describing does not at all suggest an infection.
