Welcome to ehealthforum,
Few women tend to experience spotting few days prior to actual periods. This usually occurs due to endometrial response to hormonal changes. However, spotting can also be associated with pregnancy, infective causes etc. Wait and watch for your periods. If pregnancy is suspected, visit your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). If pregnancy gets ruled out, further evaluation would be done to look for the underlying cause for the discharge/spotting that you describe. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination and investigations results) would be started to help you control the symptoms and regulate your periods. Consider being in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
