I had the merina put in about 8-12 months ago. Recently had white mucous discharge, then dark brown and now having red blood like period. Is it normal?

In brief: IUD

The Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD can make periods lighter or even make them stop for a while.
It is not worrisome that you are now having what sounds like a light period.
