Yes: Yes, recommend a serum blood pregnancy test as it will be the most accurate one and see your doctor.

Possibly: Blood pregnancy tests usually turn positive about 10-12 days after fertilization/ovulation right after implantation which is often just before or around the time of a scheduled period to occur. The urine or home pregnancy tests usually turn positive about 3-7 days after that. Early signs of pregnancy: spotting/cramping, bloating, breast tenderness, nausea, fatigue may occur shortly after that.

Perhaps...: but unlikely. the spotting could be your period. the easiest way to know is to purchase a very inexpensive home pregnancy test. take one today. if negative, repeat in 10 days and avoid alcohol in the meantime. if you had a period four weeks ago and do happen to be pregnant now, you may be early enough that it would not show up as positive right away.

Could be either: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period (or 1 week after having abnormal or "weird" period).
