Myoglobinuria: Very, dark urine with the color of cola could be due to the presence of myoglobin, which is a breakdown product of muscle cell. It can be caused by trauma, alcohol, medications, and vigorous exercises. It could indicate that you have rhabdomyolysis, which could lead to kidney failure.

Most likely...: your spotting will stop when you have an actual menstrual period. However, without knowing your menstrual history or having a crystal ball, I can't say for sure.
