In brief: Depends

There are many reasons a period might come early.
Medications can effect hormones and the menstrual cycle. Stress can have a major impact on the duration of a cycle. A person could develop an ovarian cyst that effects when a menstrual cycle occurs. It may not be unusual if it happens once. It is recommended to monitor for trends and if recurs on a regular basis this should be evaluated.
