Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for the sudden spotting that you describe without examining you and going ahead with further evaluation. Causes like breakthrough bleeding, hormonal imbalances, thyroid abnormalities etc could be possible. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation, clarification and assistance. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
