Symptoms just prior to menopause?

I am over 55 and still have regular periods. After my last period ended a week ago, I've been spotting with brown spots. A doctor once told me this is dried blood. Has anyone noticed any of this type of spotting just prior to finally not getting a period? I saw my gyn 3 months ago and everything checked out okay.
