There are many possible reasons for this.

Most often the reason is hormonal imbalance.

Then there can be problems with the uterus such as fiboids, which bleed.

Liver problems, thyroid problems and kidney problems can upset the balance of hormones.

Endometriosis and infection can cause bleeding

You need an exam now to narrow this down, and to direct any needed lab testing.

Also make sure you have not gotten pregnant which can cause a light implantation bleeding, which would explain the more recent bleed.
