Brief Answer:
Primolut can help.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Since a spotting has already started, it is suggestive of an impending periods. Taking primolut now can cause this spotting to persist for next 3-4 days and then you will have the periods after you stop taking Primolut.
Even after taking Primolut a mild spotting can persist but the period can be delayed. To delay the periods you need to start taking Primolut now thrice a day and continue taking it till Ganesha XXXXXXX is over.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
