Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. I shall try my best to assist you while you are corresponding with me.

To be in menopause officially, you should go 12 months without a period.

Having a period before that will be considered as menstruation and this happens quite commonly during peri-menopause and is completely normal, however, if the period was irregular, heavy or if it was just spotting, then you should get visit your OBs/GYN and discuss this. However, it is most likely nothing to worry about.
Hope this helps.
