Weird cycle: It is important to not panic just because one cycle if a little off from the others. The main issue is what is the pattern over time. If your cycles return to normal over the next few months then one abnormal cycle is not an issue. Always make sure your pregnancy test is negative. If you are not on birth control consider starting which will also give you better cycle control.

Monitor: A period starting two days early is not abnormal at all. Having a lighter or heavier period from time to time is also normal. I would monitor your cycles over the next few months and see what they are like. Birth control is great at regulating menstrual cycles.

Period timing: Generally menstrual interval(days between each bleed) are considered 'normal' if 21-35days. A period that starts a week earlier than usual is usually nothing to be concerned about . Make sure to take a pregnancy test. If it's neg, mark on a calendar which days you bleed and follow your cycle for 2-3 cycles. If it straightens out, then it's a non issue. If not, show your doc the calendar

Breakthrough bleed: You probably aren't ovualating regularly, which leads to the lining thickening and breaking off irregularly. Very common in women near the age of menopause. Time to see a gynecologist for an ultrasound.
