Menstruation question

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

I don’t know when my period ends and when to make ghusl. My period s noticeable and red for the first 7 days, after which it turns into a yellowish discharge. This discharge doesn’t end and goes on and on for a week or so and it is normal for me. So usually I have just been making ghusl on the tenth day and continuing my prayers. Is this correct, or should I make ghusl after the noticeable red blood ends?
