Light bleeding: Not all bleeding is a period. It could be that you haven't ovulated a few months and are just having breakthrough bleeding and not a period. You could be pregnant if you are sexually active. If on a birth control pill it could just be a normal side effect of the pill. It could also be new onset hypothyroid. Since its gone over three months, i would see a gynecologist.
