No: It takes some time for HCG levels to get low enough for the next cycle to start. It would be extremely unlikely for you to have gotten pregnant this quickly. The small amount of spotting on 3/5 might actually be ovulation at which time there is a brief, abrupt drop in estrogen that causes spotting. Regardless, your cycle is going to be delayed by the miscarriage.
