Sustained "spotting/bleeding" episodes over the time described can be due to pregnancy located outside the uterus (ectopic). Obtain a serum HCG test, and if positive , see your gyn provider soon, as this requires immediate attention. If the test is negative, delayed ovulation secondary to stress (school, work, emotional, etc.) will delay onset of true menses, but see your gyn provider.
