First of all, you should know that any bleeding that a woman sees can be menses – if its duration is not less than one day and night and not more than fifteen days – and occurs after the elapse of thirteen days from the previous menstruation. Therefore, the mentioned bleeding that you see before menstruation by two or three days is considered part of the menses as long as it is connected to its days, and the minimum period of purity (thirteen days) has elapsed since your previous menses.

For more benefit on the difference between monthly menses and bleeding outside the monthly menses, please refer to Fatawa 129256, 199375, 192925, 183343, 154565 and 145201.

For more benefit on Istihadhah and irregular menses, please refer to Fatawa 345745, 380429, 362518, 145201, 326818 and 156775.

For more benefit on irregular menses and signs of end of menses, please refer to Fatawa 395488, 361450, 355546, 323464 and 231715.

For more benefit on seeing white, reddish or brownish discharges after the end of menses, please refer to Fatawa 100850, 174955 and 231715.

Allah knows best.
