Provera to induce period -- what is withdrawal bleeding?

I haven't had a period for 3 months, so my Dr. prescribed Provera for 1 week to induce my period.  10 days after stopping Provera I still did not have a period, so she recommended I start an estrogen/progesterone regimen for 21 days (estrogen all 21 days, adding progesterone the last 7).

But at 14 days I had some light brownish spotting that lasted 2 days.  Could this be a very light period and/or indicate that the progesterone challenge worked?  I have not yet started taking the estrogen.

TTC but can't once I go on the estrogen.
