Any abnormal or unexplained vaginal bleeding should be professionally evaluated; you are doing the right thing by seeing your doctor. There are many possible causes, usually not cancer. If bleeding is so heavy you are getting weak, light-headed, etc, get seen immediately. Otherwise it is safe to wait another two days. There is no safe way to stop the bleeding yourself: do not try. Good luck.
