Light period

PERSONAL FACTORS
====================================
I am 20 and had my 1st period was at +-10 yrs old. My flow has always been 7 days and somewhat heavy in the 1st 3 days. Last time I had my period was 25 Feb - 3 Mar although this time, it did go on until the 8th day with brown blood i.e. 4 Mar.

My boyfriend and I never had sexual intercourse but do use our hands. We were rougher than usual the last time (+-5 days ago).

PROBLEM
=====================================
However, I started a light bleeding yesterday (4 April) which has NEVER happened before.

QUESTIONS
=====================================
1) Is the light bleeding a result of my period or the rough action?
2) What other causes can light bleeding have?
3) How long should this go on for before I seek help, would I go to a GP or a Gynaecologist ?

Thanks!

It might be your period, but it seems to be late. You don't say whether your periods are regular or not. Pregnancy is a possibility if you have ejaculation near the vagina, even without penetration. See yur GP initially.
