It depends on what you mean. Do you mean that during your last period cycle there was no heavy bleeding at all, JUST spotting? If that is the case, well, it is common for pregnant women to have spotting which some sexually active women mistake for having a regular period. I could be wrong though, so for your sake please do some research on it =)

How would you diagnose light bright red spotting between your December and January periods?

Some women may experience light spotting and dull cramps during ovulation, 14-16 days before your next period. This is perfectly normal.
