Spotty super light period for 3 straight days now. What does this mean? I haven't had a period in a couple months but that's normal for me so I don't usually get alarmed by that but i still usually get a normal flow, just late period but it's still spotty

In brief: Hormonal imbalance

If you did not have unprotected sex since your last period, it is likely to be hormonal imbalance.
Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.
