Thin endometrium: Very light periods are usually a funtion of a thin endometrium. Estrogen thickens the lining Progesterone will thin it. Oral contraceptives are Progesterone dominant, and many people on the pill for awhile will have very light periods.

Depends: If you miss your period or only spot, you could be pregnant or you could have a lighter than normal period. I recommend getting a pregnancy test. If that is negative, then there are many many reasons for spotting. Much depends on your age, if you are on contraception, and many other factors.

Wait and see: If you had two days of spotting that was probably your period--just a very light one. Pregnancy tests are very accurate. Track your cycles over the next couple of months. If they remain irregular see your obgyn. If they go back to normal then this was just an "off" month.

Spotting: Pregnancy is always a worry so please do a pregnancy test. If you are not pregnant (or not expected to be pregnant), just monitor it. Your normal cycle probably will start. If the irregular bleeding continues beyond the 1st month or if the flow gets out of control, I recommend that you see your doctor.
