In brief: There r many cause

Non-period bleeding can be caused by many things, including serious diseases:such as bleeding disorders, thyroid disease, or liver problems, miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy, endometriosis, infection, tumors.
Some contraception (including iuds or oral contraceptives), or having just started menstruating or being near menopause are less serious. It's worth seeing a healthcare provider about this!
