I am a mom and not a healthcare professional, so I will respond as if you were one of my daughters (except I won’t call you honey). Our health expert, Dr. Molly, says that it’s fine and that the color of the blood doesn’t matter. But if this isn’t normal for you, and you’re feeling worried, there’s no harm in talking to your healthcare provider to get the answers you need.
Same happened for me! I had my first three periods and they were a dark red-brown color. My mom said this was because the blood was old. I guess it piled up in there until my body realized it was time to start menstruating. I am actually on my fourth now and the blood is now a bright red and there are still some clumps but less that before." - Palatino34
