Small amount bleeding with vaginal discharge

Hello dr. I am 22 years old, unmarried yet and never do sexual intercoast. My first period was during 14 years old. My menstrual cycle was normal during my high school but the period length started to increase up to 14-15 days and sometimes more than that during 18 years old until now. But the problem is my period length for last month was 24 days. And right now, it still bleeding but in very small amount together with vaginal discharge. This condition also happened during 2018 up to 2 months. I was consulted with dr during that time and she gave me pills to stop the bleeding. I don’t know what is it name but the pills is red-yellow bullet. I consumed it for 3 days and the bleeding was stopped. And now, the condition is happening again. May i know if this is related with any disease and what is my next action towards this problem? Thank you in advance.
