Welcome to Healthcare Magic
This could be due to mild hormonal imbalance. It could also be due to stress. Not to worry. Remember to have safe sex. Always use condom to prevent pregnancy and STDs. Eat healthy. Drink plenty of water. Do exercise everyday. Stay stress free. Pregnancy will not cause this. You can get hormones checked by Gynaecologist.

Thanks for writing to us.
Having a period at regular intervals is absolutely normal thing even if the bleeding happens only for one day. It has been seen that gradually the bleeding reduces to 2-4 days as the age advances. You can get your hemoglobin levels checked.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
