Very Normal
This is very normal especially if you are not on bc pills dont worry about it unless it becomes irregular and no spotting doesnt count atleast in my opinion i too spot before!!

I would not worry about just 2 days difference. Hormonal/menstural cycles are hugely affected by environmental factors; do you smoke? drink alcohol? have you been dieting or exercising any differently? and age is a factor. I really wouldn't worry unless you were bleeding for significantly less or more than your usual pattern (eg from 5 to 12 days) without any environmental/overall health changes to explain it.

Mine always lasts for a week, and even sometimes I'll have a little spotting for a couple of days after. I've always been like this after my cycle got more regular.
