It is pretty normal when you start for it to be this way. Your body is still getting ready and getting everything to work together to form your menstrual cycle. The first year or two can be a bit rough. You will not ovulate every month, and you may skip months. Some periods can be a few drops, some a flood.

Your menstrual cycle is a very complex thing. Your brain, glands, hormones, ovaries and uterus must work together to form one harmonious cycle. this can take a bit of time to happen as the individuel componats begin to work.

Just use a panty liner for the next day or two to make sure you are not caught unaware. Tell your mom or guardian that you saw a bit of blood if you have not done so yet.

You will learn your signs that your period is arriving so that you can be prepared. Things like cramps, emotions, acne, oily skin or hair, irritation, feeling horny, change in your appetite, cravings and others. But do not be worried, it is not nearly as bad as it sounds. Your mom has gone through this herself and understands what you are go through. Talk to her about what you are feeling and wondering about. That is one of the things that moms are there for.

Best of luck!

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i understand your concern.Many girls will have a very light flow of blood the first couple of times they get their period, others have more. Lots of girls expect their blood to be bright red during their periods, but it's completely normal for menstrual blood to be brownish. Consult your gynecologist if you are ever concerned about your period.

Take care
