YES - stop the provera now so that you can have a full period -
usually taking the provera for at most 5 to 7 days is all you really ever need
I'm not sure if it is a period because my last period finished just 2 weeks ago.
okay - well the Provera will cause Progesterone withdrawal which is a period -
so yes stop the provera that you are on.
Ok. I have 2 more months course to take after this month, so do i continue my next course 16 days after today (first day of my period) and stop taking them if bleeding occurs again in the future?
when you take provera - and then plan to stop it - it will cause a WIthdrawal bleed - that is normal - and once you start to spot - that is an indication to stop
You can start your next course about 14 to 21 days from now - really up to you - You just make it convenient for you
and when you start to bleed - just stop again for another 14 to 21 days -
That should help you
I wish you well

Just one more question. I didn't actually plan to stop taking it. The bleeding just started during my 10 day course. so does that make a difference or mean something is wrong?
No it does not mean anything - it is common to have breakthrough bleeding with progesterone - it is seen all the time
And this is classed as a period?
Yes - that is what a period is - Progesterone 'withdrawal' that is all a period is
