i just started my period new years eve. it never ended. i was just wondering if this is completely normal?
It doesn't sound normal to me, especially if you haven't been having periods that last a week or more. Is it tapering off at all, or a steady flow all along? It's possible you have something like a fibroid.

its been spotting
Well, just from my own experience, there's been times when my cycle was very short, and times where it was a week...more or less. But, when it was around a week, the flow wasn't heavy or normal the entire time, leading into it was light/spotting, and towards the end was the same way. If it was a steady flow the whole time, I'd see a Gyn asap...that would worry me. Maybe you should just see how things go next month. Unless this starts happening often, it might be nothing to worry about.

Should I be nervous at all though?
Well, it looks like today is day 9. I'm always nervous is something unusual is happening with my body. If it doesn't stop by morning, I would just do the safe thing and see a gynecologist. Sometimes you can contact an "ask a nurse" phone number, and discuss it with someone who can give advice...maybe through your health insurance company?
