This spotting is weird!!!

Ok ladies....I am on CD 35. AF should arrive tomorrow :(
3 days ago I started spotting very very light. Just a little tinge when wiping.

Yesterday I spotted a bit more when wiping and just a little bit on pantyliner throughout day.

TODAY.....it's odd. I am wearing a pad just in case I start AF but there isn't much on my pad..When I go to the washroom is a different story. It's like everything just comes out then....it looks like old blood though.  (I'm sorry if I gross you out but it's the only way to explain) It looks like pulp...you know like lemonade or oj....Only it's the blood. There's a lot of stuff when I wipe...rust/brown colour!!
Not sure whether to consider this AF or just spotting b/c there's no actual real flow. There's next to nothing on my pad and I can't feel the flow like I normally can.
What is this??? Any ideas....if you look at my previous posts, I had some odd 45 day long cycle last month. The only other thing I feel is bloated and have a crazy headache.
Ideas?? Opinions?

I'm having a similar problem.  According to MyMonthlyCycles (where I track my cycles), I was supposed to have a period on Aug 1st (which means nothing really as I'm very irregular and have only tracked about 3-4 cycles so far).  Anyway, Aug 1st and 2nd came and went and nothing.  Then I started spotting on Monday (Aug 3rd) and it was light the whole week until today, when there was a bit more but similar in color and consistency to what you described.  Now it seems to have gone back to what it was earlier in the week.

Symptoms-wise, I've had the headaches (not like my usual sinus headaches), bloating, very mild cramping, low back pain and I feel a little nauseous after I eat.  I've done 2 HPTs and both were negative.

I have no idea if I should consider this a period; since I'm tracking my cycles, should I consider Aug 3rd as CD1? I'm as confused as you, LOL
