A dark cashew sized clot(?) along with heavy bright red/thin bleeding during my period. Followed by smaller dark pieces. Consistent with heavy flow?

In brief: Yes

If your period is on time this month then small clots are nothing to worry about.
If you are late, then take a pregnancy test and see your doctor. Clotting can be due to heavy menstrual flow but if you are pregnant it could be something worse.
