What Is Spotting and How Long Does It Last???

I was wondering what spotting looks like and how long it lasts?  Could it last a few days?  Is it pink, brown, yellow.... thick or thin??

Like I've said I'm late on my period and now something really thin and brownish is being discharged.  I've only been noticing it for a few hours... So what is spotting and how long should it last?

All I know is that a m/c is BRIGHT red blood with clots. Spotting is usually brownish, maybe ting of pink. I really don't know a whole lot about spotting, but I know about m/c. I'm pretty sure spotting is different for everyone, but spotting is as it sounds... spots of blood, not globs of blood. So it should be pretty dry on the pad. As for thick/thin, probably thin.
