Concerned? Period, UTI or spotting?

So my boyfriend and I have only ever done Bj, Fingering, and etc. Not actual penis to vagina penetration. I had my period, it lasted about 3 days and it was bleeding heavily, but on the 4th day it was light brown. I had to google it, it was something called spotting? but I'm pretty sure it's normal. It's currently still very very light, and brown, and my period started on the 29th and was suppose to end yesterday, im not sure if the bleeding was from last night or today, it was very light brown and Im getting some clear discharge. And my vagina hurts a bit, is this a UTI? or is it normal? Not pregnant? (just to make sure) What do you think this is?

Hello NSamiii,

Spotting is normal and is not related to urinary infections, pregnancy or any other vaginal issues.   Color of blood is not significant.  Spotting usually happens before and/or after periods.  

The only time spotting signifies a possible problem is when it happens between periods.
