I have my period right now, and it is light pink in color. It is usually much more red. Anyone know why this may be?

Its a regular period, more then spotting. But my blood just seems more pinkish. I had some very strange stomach pain the last couple of days. It was in my upper abdomen, below my ribs. My mid back also hurt.

From your first post, I was gonna say implantation spotting (which is what happened to me with DD) I had a light pink "period" a few days earlier than i should have.

Those are pretty classic symptoms of an ectopic pregnancy. A pregnancy test wouldn't hurt, and a check-up probably wouldn't hurt either. (If you don't have health insurance, your local Health Dept should be able to)

I hope it's not and it's just some random weird flow.
