miscarriage vs. (irregular) period

i am 28 years of age.  i live a healthy life style; however, have an iron deficiency. i work extensively and am in a committed relationship.  (i am sexually active.)

i generally have my period at a 28-day cycle.  abssolutely on time... very predictable.  since the new year, i've experienced somewhat an abnormality in my cycle.  on my 28th day... 01/15, i received my period.  (i'm two days strong; one day spotting--done by the 4th day.)  18 days later... 02/02, period arrives.  strong... lasting 5-7 days.  (initially, i thought... new cycle.)  another 18 days pass... 02/20, period arrives.  stonger... also lasting 5-7 days.  oddly, possibly on the 4/5th day... period runs dry.  within 15 minutes (possibly less), period starts up again--HEAVY!!!  having rushed to the bathroom, a large clot was discharged.  at this point, i felt very weak and lightheaded.  

i figured if my period came again at 18 days, i would schedule an appointment with my gyne.  i've surpassed the 18 days and am now waiting for my 28th day.

my question is... were the past two occurrences miscarriages or irregular menstrual cycles???  if the past two occurrences were miscarriages, ...two consecutive?!?!
