Hi and welcome.

Any bleeding other than regular period specially in your age group should be evaluated thoroughly. It can be due to number of causes most common being hormonal imbalance , others include fibroids, uterine wall problems. I would suggest that it is best for you to see you gynecologist as soon as possible so that exact cause can be confirmed and treated accordingly. Take lots of fluids and if bleeding is too heavy then you can go to ER as well to avoid excess blood loss.
