Brief Answer:
miscarriage? DUB?

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXX,
If your period came a day after you had on Aug 2nd, then you didnt get pregnant in that cycle. Your clot came out Aug 31st, so there is possibility of a spontaneous abortion if you had had sex in that cycle, after 2nd Aug. If however, you had'nt had sex in Aug, then its likely to be dysfunctional uterine bleeding, possibly due to hormonal imbalance. At 42, its likely that you could be having some hormonal imbalance and it may last a few years. If something similar happens again, you need to be examined and also get an ultrasound.

Brief Answer:
Possibly

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

As long as you are still getting a period, yes, you can get pregnant. I suggest you use regular contraception, until you achieve menopause.
