My sisters 10 and having blood clots when on her period. Should I tell mom?

Yes. 10 doesn't seem too young to have periods these days. Clots (they are not really clots but that's another issue) are unusual and should be looked into. At age 10 she is too young to make her own decision about this and is probably too embarassed. Tell your mom if she won't.
