Welcome to the forum!
The irregular bleeding that you are facing could be due to i-pill(emergency contraceptive pill) that you took. The bleeding that occurred 10 days earlier could have been withdrawal bleeding. The bleeding which started on 1st October could be the normal period.
The emergency contraceptive pills can cause this irregular bleeding which can extend up to the normal period date.
If after 5 days (which is your normal period) also the bleeding persists, then you need to consult your gynecologist regarding this. It is difficult to comment beyond this on net. Hope this helps. Take care!
