As salaam wa alaikum,
 
Almost every month approximately around when my period is due (give or take 1-3 days) I will maybe once a day get some bright red blood spotting.  After this spotting has appeared I get no other bleeding for sometimes hours or even a full day. I am also very dry in my private area.  After a few days my period will start. Now I do not know if I should count these 1-3 days as part of my period. The blood is  not period like but as it occurs most months I assume I count is as my period.  But I’m not 100% sure?
