I have started to track my menstrual cycle and have come to learn it is only 17 days. Could this be normal?

In brief: Menstrual cycle

You are probably not having a period but maybe some break through bleeding around the time of ovulation.
There are other causes of irregular bleeding such as thyroid issues, polyps, fibroids etc. You may want to follow up with your doctor.
