Hi Anon

Thank you for your post!

Some women start out their periods with dark/brown blood. This is old blood, generally coming from the month before and is not uncommon or generally something to worry about.

Getting periods every two weeks means you don't have a regular cycle. There are many reasons for this - you can read more here: http://www.empowher.com/menstrual-cycle/content/reasons-having-period-every-two-weeks

Best,
Susan
