My menstral blood is orangish red. What does that mean?

Nothing at all. Blood changes color depending on how much oxygen it is exposed to. It doesnt mean anything. On occasion, blood changes color due to a very heavy and colored vaginal discharge. You would have noticed this ahead of time.

Ok and i also have really bad cramps. They hurt so bad i cry, im up all night without sleep and i take menstal pain pills and that still doesnt help. Its like this every month.

It would benefit you to start taking a birth control pill. That decreases or eliminates the cramps.
