Im 21 and started my period 5 days early, experiencing very severe cramping and large clots in blood and heavy bleeding. Is this normal?

In brief: Probably nothing

The menstrual cycle is sensitive to many things (weight changes, stress, medications, etc.
..). Depending on age, menopausal status and other factors, this may need to be evaluated asap. Keep a strict menstrual diary and follow up with ob/gyn.
