period problem

I started my period 6 days ago. It stopped after 4 days for a day and a half, which I have started pre-menopause (which my doctor confirmed with a blood test) so wasn't shocked last month when it stopped at for days when it used to last for 9 each month. My period started back up last night and today I have had some what mild to severe cramps off and on and now my period is black and tarry! Should I be concerned? I have no insurance and need to know if this is serious before I make a decision to go to the hospital.
