In brief: Anovulation

If you are not taking any hormonal therapy or birth control pills then spotting that is not regular may mean that you are no longer ovulating regularly.
If you are near menopause then this situation may be abnormal and needs to be evaluated with an ultrasound and endometrial biopsy.

In brief: Many possibilities

This may not be significant but requires a detailed history including the duration of this change and probably also an examination and possibly some testing to allow a complete answer.
