Bleeding: Perhaps that bleeding was your period. Apparently shorter than usual, but still possibly it was a period. You are only 18, so very likely your cycles are not yet stable and predictable. The pregnancy test was negative. These tests are very accurate when done under the right conditions, typically after a missed period. Perhaps your period wasn't really missed, but just different.
