Early 50's, always had normal and regular periods, now occasionally have pinkish tint on toilet paper on wiping. Worrisome?

Hi. I ll be 47 this month and I have to say my periods are pretty reg for the most part...happening every 25 to 27 days. There have been instances where it has shown up a week early or up to a week late...but not that often. My last period started on august 31. It starts off light and then for the next two days usually it s a heavy flow...clotting occurs when I wake up in the am after laying down and use the bathroom for the first time and/ or shower. Occasionally I will have clots during the day. They usually last about five days maybe six. However, I ve noticed that up to last night, occasionally when I urinate and wipe, there may be a light pinkish or tan tint on the toilet paper. Is this something I should be concerned with? This has never happened before and I am a little scared. could you please share your thoughts? Thank you. My email address is YYYY@YYYY .
