Light menstrual cycle, inter-menstrual bleeding. History of heavy periods. Pregnancy a possibility?

I recently had a menstrual cycle less then 3 weeks ago and I have started another 1. What could that possibly mean? I have been drinking last night which means my flow should ve been heavy, but it was still light. Normally my menstrual cycle is extremely heavy, but I haven t had that much bleeding . My friend is telling me that means this true?

Thanks for your query.
It does not necessarily mean a pregnancy, but altered menstrual bleeding CAN indicate pregnancy or any of its related complications.
Possibilities include an ongoing intra uterine pregnancy, an ectopic pregnancy or a miscarriage.
Also, anxiety, stress, thyroid hormone imbalance, polycystic ovaries, endometrial hyperplasia also should be ruled out as potential causes by consulting a gynecologist.
Take care.
