Brief Answer:
Can be infection or hormonal imbalance.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The mild and irregular bleeding that you are having can be due to dry vagina, a vaginal infection or a hormonal imbalance. A direct examination and vaginal swab culture will help in detecting the cause. In case it is due to a hormonal imbalance then hormonal pills will help.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
