Hello dear,
Thanks for trusting hcm about your health care.
I have gone through your history and understand your concerns.
In women menstrual cycle these changes are quite common and may occur due to stress,anxiety, mild hormonal changes,diet changes,fibroid, PCOD and pills.
So if this is first time then no need to worry.
See for next 2-3cycles,if problem persists than get yourself examined.
