I always have light periods of 4 days! But from few months it became more shorter like 2 days. Since last cycle i have bleeding in flow. But now i am having periods from yesterday in which blood is only passing in urine. No blood on pad! I also have pelvic, legs cramps from almost april. What are the possible reasons?

As per your description, there are two points of concern.First of all, there is a scanty cycle and definitely you need to be investigated for this.there are multiple reasons behind this and obesity, thyroid disorders or PCOS might be the reasons,those need to be sorted out.
Now you are having blood in urine.This signifies you are having some infection in urine and that needs treatment.You need a routine urine testing as well as antibiotics as per the test result.Just meet your GP for an opinion and in the meantime, start drinking plenty of water.
