Probably normal: Ovulation spotting may last 1-2 days and is a normal variant of typical ovulation. Your cycles are shorter than usual. If not pregnant soon, see your gynecologist.

Preovulatory mucous: This is a normal occurrence in many women as the cervical mucous becomes more fluid just before ovulation. Absolutely not alarming.
