longer than normal period

Hey all. I have a concern and was wondering when should i start worrying.
I used to have super short and light periods. about 3 days and really light. about 8 months ago I got the copper iud inserted. the first 3 months my period was extremely heavy and lasted about seven days. after that it became lighter and was about 6-7 days. Anyway this month I started spotting lightly ( i have had this since the iud) and then 3-4days later i got my period... it is day 8 and i still have my period. thats a total of 11 days. I wouldnt be worried except that it doesnt seem like its stopping, and the blood seems thinner and brighter than usual as well. i was wondering what could be the cause of this and should i be calling my doctor. or should i go to the gyno with this? any help much appreciated. thanks
