Having a short period may not be anything significant.
Some months are just different. It is important to keep track of your monthly periods .... Start and end date. How heavy was it? Cramps? Other symptoms?

This can be normal and just indicate a lower hormone stimulation of the lining for that particular cycle.
It could be abnormal and indicate an early pregnancy, stress, ovarian cyst, other hormone fluctuations or thyroid problems.
