Alexis, this could mean that your cycle is going to start again. In the first few months (and sometimes years), your menstrual cycle is just getting started, so it may not be very regular at all.

Do you have a trusted adult that you can go to with questions? Even the school nurse can be a great resource for you!

It is really normal, when you first get your period, for it to be a bit all over the place and irregular. I agree with Shawnn, that you should find a trusted adult you can talk to and ask questions.

Probably the start of another period or spotting. When you first start your periods, they can be very irregular and one might be heavy and last 7 days, while the next is very light and lasts 2 days. If you are not sexually active, you are likely fine. Why don't you talk to your mom about this?
