Should I be worried?

Usually I have a long period that lasts about 6 days, and is about moderate flow. I'm not sure if I should be worried, but for the first time, my period is pretty light, and i think it's already ending and today is the third day. I know it's not necessarily uncommon to have short periods but for me it is. Is there something that maybe caused it? Should I be Worried?

Women's periods can change, and this is not necessarily a cause for concern. When you would want to seek medical attention is if your period lasts longer than 7-10 days, your flow is heavy and you soak through a tampon or pad every hour, you have extreme pain or other similar symptoms.

A period that is lighter and shorter in duration can be completely normal!
