Hi

From the description, it does look like you may be nearing your menopause.
But considering your age, such an irregular spotting surely needs further assessment in the form of hormonal evaluation.
I would advise you to see a nearby gynecologist who can examine and get the required investigations done so as to be sure about the benign nature of such a spotting.
