Hello dear, yes most probably these are signs of upcoming periods but periods in initial few months are largely erratic.
Ranging from 1-7 days and from minimal spotting to heavy flow. But eventually they will stabilize and you will be knowing your period pattern then.
For now I think we can only wait till the periods set but prediction of length, interval and quantity is not possible.
Take care and wish you the best of health
