I got my period twice in one cycle. I had a rather light one

I got my period twice in one cycle. I had a rather light one about 2 weeks ago. Then I got it again this past Sunday. It started out dark red. I'm 47 years old and had a normal Pap smear November 2015. I was bleeding heavily so my ObGyn ordered an internal and external unltasound. It came back normal except for 3 fibroids. My period has still been every 28 days until recently. I know I was anemic and underweight, and I ate extra over the holidays and gained some weight. Also I rarely drink but in the past if my period was late I would indulge in alcohol and it would start my period, and I had a rare glass of champagne on New Year's. on the ultrasound, they said they couldn't see one of my ovaries. So my question/s are: Does this mean they have no idea if that ovary is normal? Do I need another Pap smear? I don't have insurance until my work season begins again so I'd hope to figure this out without more tests. Thanks
