Yes, actually most women's periods can be described by light spotting for a day or two, followed by heavier bleeding for 3-4 days, with it tapering off again into lighter bleeding/spotting for another 2-3 days.

You can keep track of your periods with noting the first day you experience spotting, and then also track when you begin heavy bleeding, and you will notice over the next 3-4 months what your normal cycle is! As far as when your actual start date on your period is, I assume once you track your period after the next 3-4 months (listing both possible start dates of spotting and flow), it will become apparent when your start date is (or a rough estimate...that's OK to be a day or two "off", as it will change over time).

Does that help?
