Irregular periods usually are because of irregular or unpredictable ovulation, also known as pcos, which is an acronym for polycystic ovarian syndrome.
In your particlular case, pregnancy needs to be ruled out and you probably need to see your health care providet to make obtain a diagnosis and treatment plan. About 1% of patients with your symptoms would have an elevated prolactin causing this.
