Light ok, more not: I am assuming you are not on birth control pills. Some light spotting, like pink discharge can happen when you make an egg and the hormones shift, but if you are mid 40s and more than that, you should get it checked by your gyno. You need to make sure not growing polyps or even early stage uterus cancer. Not likely, but never know, that is more common than cervix Ca and ppl get paps all the time.

Common complaint: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test .
