Brief Answer:
Please get seen by a Gynecologist

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HCM. Please note that this is not normal, you need to have it checked out, uterine bleeding in a postmenopausal woman is malignancy until proven otherwise, I do not mean to scare you, but that is the extent of the investigation that you need moving forward. Thanks and take care.
