Yes: It is possible to have bleeding/ spotting and still be pregnant. Serum tests for pregnancy are more sensitive than urine testing and may be "positive" as early as 5 days after fertilization. Quantitative tests measure the actual hormone levels, and in early pregnancy they are expected to double every 2 to 3 days. You do not have to stop breast feeding if you are pregnant.
