In brief: No

Spotting in mid-cycle is not infrequent due to drop in estrogen levels.
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.

Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
Get HPV vaccine, if you are under 27 years of age.
