Spotting before period kicks in - does it count as period?

The past few months, since I've restarted my period after having my baby, my period has been VERY slow to start up. Like a day or two of very light spotting, hardly even a drop, and then it kicks in for real.

For the purposes of the <a href="">Glow app</a>, does the spotting indicate the start of my period, or should I log it as spotting (non-period day) before the start of the actual period? I wouldn't consider it "period flow" but apparently this is how my period starts now.

I don't want to mess up my Glow ovulation results by logging this wrong... Thanks for your help!
