Your doctors are right when they ask you to to undergo tests to determine the cause or your bleeding.
There can be various causes for your vaginal bleeding,like
Thinning of mucosal lining of your vagina due to low hormone levels.
Any polyp or fibroid in uterus.
Endometrial hyperplasia or cancer.
Any cancer of vagina or cervix or ovaries.
Since treatment of each of these problems is different,it is very important to find the cause so that a proper treatment can be instituted.
There is no other way except to get tested.

Welcome to HCM,
Having bleeding for long time at this age requires evaluation of the problem.
Consult Gynaec and get thoroughly examined physically, with ultra sound, and hormonal testing and get it diagnosed and then go for treatment accordingly.
Ok and bye.
