Why am I having heavy and dark bleeding with stomach pain and headache ?

I am 18 and a female. I had my period two weeks ago and it was a week late, then when I finally got it, it lasted nine days but it was very light and would come and go. Now two weeks later I am bleeding again and It is very dark and heavy. Along with the bleeding I have been having bad stomach pains and headaches. Should I be worried? What should I do?

Stomache Pain. Top of the stomache (hand size), pain comes and goes for the last 15 days. Xray and scan has been diagnosed normal, buscopan only relieves pain , able to sleep and do physical work no problem, but its stressful to not know what it is. Because of the iron tablet I take Im not regular maybe once a week, its with a dark stools due to the iron tablets.I put my jack russell dog down 10 days ago he was coughing up blood with a blotting stomache the vet said he was to old have surgery. Im hoping I havent got what he had, My GP checked me their was no evidence of serve pain, she said to take panadole and if pain gets worse my next step will be to have a tube stuck up my anus to go through my stomache . Do I live with this pain , do i wait till im bleeding before anything is done? I worried.

Been taking Elinest for 14mo for birth control. After a short time of intense physical activity in June of this year I did not menstruate. Normal cycle returned in July. Continued use has been uneventful until a few weeks ago I was due to menstruate (again after a short period of intense physical activity) and did not. I restarted the pills as usual, and did not test for pregnancy. I have never missed a pill nor been late in taking them. Please advise....should I be concerned about pregnancy now, or wait until I miss January s to confirm?
