What you're experiencing sounds totally normal. Your first period may be light. The first day is usually light and then it may be heavy for a day or two and then lighten up again. That's just in general. Some people's periods last 3-4 days, others for 6-7. And, you may or may not get your period every month. In young girls who just start their period, it can take the body about 2 years before you get a regular period that comes every month.
