Spotting before a period could be an implantation bleed but could also mean that your period is about to start. Some women have irregular shedding of the womb lining with spotting before the actual period starts. It could also be an indication of a cervical polyp. I would suggest that you check a  pregnancy test. If this is negative and you regularly have irregular periods or spotting, then you should see a  gynae.
