Spotting is normal when you're due your period, menstruation doesn't have an on/off switch, it takes time for the uterine lining to start shedding so it will start slowly. Your period is heavy but not necessarily unusually heavy and unless you have other symptoms there's no reason to think there's anything wrong. If you're leaking through an ultra absorbency tampon within an hour then your period is unusually heavy and you should seek medical attention.
