Possible: It is not uncommon to have some spotting around the time of ovulation which is about 14 days before the start of your period. The pulling could be due to many things. This being said, it is always possible that you could be pregnant. I would advise a pregnancy test to ease your mind.

Probably not: Symptoms that begin before you miss a period are usually not due to pregnancy. Spotting around ovulation time is not too unusual. If you miss a period, then pregnancy may be likely, and i'd do a pregnancy test.

Sure: Many people are incorrect about their gestational age based on their last period. Fortunately there is a very easy solution. We can do a sonogram in early pregnancy to confirm how far along someone is.
