In brief: 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 .  there are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit.
