Brief Answer:
A colposcopy and d&c procedure is needed.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor service.
I read your query and here is my advice.

I think the next step is colposcopy. Your doctor should see if bleeding may even come from vagina or colum. The biopsy of colum uteri may be not needed if colposcopy comes normal.
A d&c procedure is because your endometrial linning is relatively thick according to your age and the material will be used for biopsy.

Hope I have answered the question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
