Why is a menstrual cycle called a period?

Occurs monthly

Menstrual_cycle
Colloquialisms are odd. Since menses occur about every 28 days in human females, there is a periodicity to them. It's an older term meaning regularly occurring. So one gets a period means its that time of the month for the periodic shedding of endometrial tissue absent a fetal implantation.

See a Doctor

There maybe some hormonal imbalance going on which some lab tests can help determine. Also, stress and any changes in diet or lifestyle can affect menstrual cycles. There is something called Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) that can lead to sporadic menses. See an OBGYN so that they can run labs, possible imaging, and take a thorough history and physical to help figure this out

Is there any way to shorten your period or is there any possibility to make it come sooner or later than your normal menstrual cycle?

Depends

Menses
The cycle can be altered to a great extent with oral contraceptive pills. It is quite possible to delay the cycle for days, weeks, and even months. Without surgical means it is not possible to cause the menses to come sooner than would normally happen after ovulation.

Can you have 2 menstrual cycle within a 1-month period?

Yes

Open-uri20120814-22459-9hw0hm
A relatively recent study showed that some women have the potential for more that one ovulating periods in a given "cycle." It is not common. More likely is an alternative such as an infection or a polyp in the cervix or uterus or hormonal change. Generally these are benign and easily treated. Check with your doctor. An ultrasound may be appropriate. Pregnancy and ovulatory bleeds are possible.
