Brief Answer:
You are not on your period, please go to the ER or your obstetrician.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query,

You are not on your period.

The bleeding is most likely due to detachment of the placenta from the uterus (This condition is called abruption). Or it could also be due to rupture of a blood vessel from the umbilical cord.

Both cases need to be managed urgently.

You have to go to the ER or visit your obstetrician immediately.

I hope this answers your query.

Wishing you safe delivery and speedy recovery.

Best regards.
