Welcome to ehealthforum,
Having periods after long gap in menopausal age could indicate underlying hormonal problems, endometrial hyperplasia, DUB etc. Consider visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician (not GP) for further evaluation and management/treatment (based on examination and investigation results). You might need to undergo hormonal and blood work-up along with ultrasound scan to look for the exact cause. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
