Longer periods, large and thick blood clots with discolored pale color. What does this mean?

I ve been on my period for a while now, but suddenly the flow is much faster, and I m having regular blood clotting of a regular color but then I have blood clots that are larger and they are a discolored pale color, not clear, just not brown or red. The thickness of these type blood clots are VERY thick and with the toilet paper, it s more difficult to tear the blood clot a part while normal ones are easily smashed Not too sure what this could mean.

Thanks for query,
The clots of menstrual blood depend upon the shading of endometrial bits in it.
Due to hormonal surge & withdrawal endometrial preparation becomes thick & thin.
So nothing to worry for it.
