What is the question?

Are you wondering why your period is abnormal? If so, it could be any number of things.
If you've had sex, you could be pregnant.
If your diet or lifestyle has changed, it could have caused a shift in your hormones, which can throw the period off for a little bit.
If you are overly stressed, your body can respond by not completely readying your uterus for implantation, thus the lighter than usual period.
You could have a cyst or other growth inside your uterus obstructing the process of lining the walls with blood tissue.
If you have been dieting or heavily restricting your food intake, you may not have had enough nutrients in your system to create the extra blood cells needed for a full lining (this is why anorexic women do not have a period).
Depending on your age, your body could be experiencing a shift in hormones that can change your cycle. If you are still too young for menopause, it should even out soon, but will be on a different schedule.

There are really a lot of other things that I don't have time to go into here. You should be fine leaving it for the month (as long as you know you aren't pregnant), but if it is still off next month, or if you experience any unusual pain with it, you need to see your OBGYN because it could be something more serious.
