Period, spotting. Need help.

I've search all over the internet for questions and answers that i'm about to ask and found nothing helpful. I am usally regular when it comes to my period, sometimes the dates do switch up, but i get my period every month, no in this occasion this month i kinda haven't gotten anything. I'm 22, on the 15 i started spotting and then after that there was some blood, i got my period on Feb.11th. and right now its the 17th. all i have been having is very very slight light pinkish blood. AND there is NO chance i am pregnant. Is this normal or should i see the doctor? I'm very scared and concerned if this effects me having children in the future. Thinking about it all causes me to just stress out and become uneasy and very overwhelmed all at once. Any advice and answers would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

Intermenstrual bleeding may be due to many causes. If it was after intercourse or masturbation then chances of genital infection or cervical polyps are there.They are tiny, harmless growths on the outer surface of the cervix and can bleed after intense sexual intercourse.Stress and anxiety can also cause intermenstrual bleeding.

Other causes may be uterine fibroids,miscarriage after a pregnancy, fluctuation in hormone levels, use of anticoagulant drugs and hypothyroidism.

Please get yourself evaluated by a gynecologist as pelvic examination and investigations are required to confirm a diagnosis.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
