Thanks for posting your query.
It is normal to have a gas and indigestion with mild pain abdomen during your periods. You can take an anti spasmodic to relieve your symptoms.
The light period that you are having for last four days is likely to be due to a mild hormonal disturbance. It is not suggestive of pregnancy. This flow is likely to increase over next few days.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
