Welcome to ehealthforum.
Light spotting during perimenopausal time could indicate changes in hormonal levels with your body trying to get adjusted to lower levels of hormones. If the spotting is occurring after you stopped having regular periods, then it could be abnormal. Report to your gynecologist for a check to make sure that there is no other abnormalities associated that could lead to spotting (eg: DUB, PID, ovarian cysts, cervical cancer, adenomyosis, etc).
Take care.
