Muslim Teens/Menstruation and ibaadah issues


I was on a visit to the city of Mecca and Medinah that I can use all my time there for ibaadah of all kinds,I have been taking a medicine to stop my periods. The system of the medicine is such that the day I stop my pills,from the next day I'll start having periods.
But I'm having very less in quantity,once a day only, dirty light to dark brown colored fluid/blood discharge since the last 6 days,without any symptoms of periods like the pain etc..and it is continuing still. I have been offering salah in this situation,went to the haram of both Mecca and Medinah,prayed there,even in the hateem area,did nafil tawaafs,touched the kaaba,and did so many other important religious things just because I have been told that this is not to be considered as periods as it is just the result of cleaning of my internal female organs.
But I'm very confused and scared,as to if this is actually considered periods according to Islamic views? Should I stop praying until this kinda discharge stops? As I was unaware of the ruling,if any on this....will all my ibadah done during this duration of discharge days be nullified??? Will Allah paak punish me for it? Or do I have to give some dumm or compensation?
I have no idea at all of all this.I'm very young...please tell me whether I did something major wrong or sinful this way?? Will Allah accept my duaas,prayers and ibaadah in such a state???
please reply ASAP !!!!
