Weird random spotting?

I'm really confused...

I don't know how relevant any of this is, but just as a little  background... I lost my virginity at 16, a few months later I started Ortho Tri-Cyclen (sp?) (and yes I know I did that in the wrong order! LOL Young and dumb!) I was on OTC until 19 and haven't had any form of HBC since. I had my first child when I was 23, 2nd child the day before my 25th birthday. I had some spotting in the 2nd month of my pregnancy with my 1st pregnancy, but very light and only for about a week. With my 2nd pregnancy I spotted a little heavier for almost the entire 1st trimester. Aside from that, I haven't had any kind of spotting besides at the beginning or end of my periods, ever. Not before HBC, not durring, not after, nothing. I have not used any form of birth control at all besides condoms occasionally. Lately (for the past 4-5 months or so) we have been using condoms pretty regularly because my husband went through Chemo and the possibility of birth defects wasn't something we wanted to risk. So we've been pretty careful. He still has about another 5 months before they will consider the drugs to be out of his system, so we're going to continue to use them for a while.

So, I started my period on the 16th and it lasted through to the 22nd, was a fairly normal period if not a bit shorter/lighter than normal, but it was my first period that I used my menstrual cup (which I LOVE!! and had no real issues with at all) so maybe it just seemed lighter. Oh, I did have a YI about a week before my period, but I treated and it seems to have cleared up just fine. Now, tomorrow will be 2 weeks since my period started and today I go to the bathroom and wipe and to my surprise, it looks like I'm starting my period all over again! I guess it's just spotting since it's not really a flow and it is not bright red (more the rusty/brick color) but enough that it got on my underwear... I'm confused... I have never had spotting between periods before and the only time I have had periods this close together was my first few periods after giving birth the first time.

Any ideas on why I'm bleeding now? I REALLY doubt I'm pregnant since we're actively preventing and haven't had any slip ups or accidents recently. I am just confused as to why this would come up now...
