Yes: sometimes your period can be early or late by a few days. Its ok to wait. If you have unprotected sex and are worried about a pregnancy, you can take a home pregnancy test to reassure yourself. Goodluck

Likely normal: It is not unusual for periods to start several days earlier or later than usual. And for an early or late period to start as spotting. See what happens over the next few days.

Several things: 1. Never rule out a pregnancy and should be evaluated 2. If you are on hormonal birth control, this can thin the lining out so much that your periods can be this light 3. Could be other hormonal disorders including thyroid, prolactin, and androgen excess disorders including polycystic ovarian syndrome.

There usually isn't: bleeding with implantation but when it does occur it is usually a drop or so of blood. The timing is not correct for implantation either. You can take a pregnancy test is your period is late. Take care.
