Why am i getting spotting even though i am not pregnant ?

I had experiencing some spotting it started about 6 days before my period was due.. my period is due from 1-4 days from now. After the first three days of spotting (some days just spot and other a bit heavier) I went to take a blood prenancy test. and it was negative.. the bleeding still continues.. could this be just an abnormality of my period? I had never had sex before.. I just started about a month and half ago.. could it be that my body is just getting use to it?..I am a bit concern that it could be stress or other more serious problems. Please some help.

Hi , you said you started having periods about a month ago or that is your menarche , it is nothing to worry as the cycles are usually anovulatory at this age which is the cause of abnormal uterine bleeding.Do not take any medicine.Do lot of activity and take iron supplements, green leafy vegetables , fruits and fibre rich diet.
Cheers
