My period was due this coming Tuesday (12th sept). I did a pregnancy test this morning which was negative.

As long as your periods are usually regular, I wouldn't be concerned. The bleeding is likely hormonal and not anything serious.

I would give it some time and see if things return to normal.

If there is any chance of an STD, I would get tested, since STD's can cause abnormal bleeding.

If the bleeding seems quite heavy, then I would see your doctor for treatment. Best wishes.
