I've been on the depo injection for nearly a year

Patient : I've been on the depo injection for nearly a year now and since ive been on it, it has stopped my period completely. When I went to the bathroom earlier I noticed a bit of bleeding. Is this normal/ment to happen? Im really scared and I don't know if somethings wrong as since my first shot I never got it again and now all of a sudden its back after about 9 if not more months of getting the depo injection. I have never missed my scheduled injection. Please help! Is this normal?
