Is it possible for you to test for pregnancy while implantation bleeding is going on?

Would wait until: Your HCG has time to increase. A regular pregnancy test is often done at time of a missed period. An early pregnancy test may detect pregnancy up to 6 days prior to the anticipated period. Most of the time bleeding does not occur with implantation. Implantation usually occurs 6 to 12 days after ovualation.

I'd ignore it: 'implantation bleeding' is subtle and unpredictable, if it can reliably be interpreted at all. Internet over-emphasizes 'implantation bleeding' and how useful it is. I suggest a reliable pregnancy test 11-13 days after ovulation instead, you'll have the truth.

Nope: Though implantation bleeding is not unusual, most pregnancies are not accompanied by it.
