Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

Yes, it could be a miscarriage since you have clots in the bleeding. Other causes of heavy bleeding which should be ruled out are fibroids, adenomyosis, endometriosis, uterine polyps, hormonal imbalance, thyroid problems and bleeding disorders.
Consult a gynecologist regarding this since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net. Hope this helps. Take care!
