Possible: Only way to know for sure is to check a pregnancy test. A serum (blood) test will turn positive before a urine.

Possibly: Get a home pregnancy test. They turn positive at about the same time you'd be due to start your next expected period. If it's negative, repeat in 1 week and call your doctor.

Not really: Politely, "implantation bleeding" is mostly an internet fad - 'real' implantation bleeding is sporadic and highly unpredictable, and doesn't happen at all in most cases. Implantation always happens 6-7 days after ovulation, so if 'implantation bleeding' happens that's when it would be.

I'd ignore it: Internet buzz over-emphasizes the idea of 'implantation bleeding' and how useful a predictor it is. I suggest a reliable pregnancy test 11-13 days after ovulation, you'll have the truth.

10 mIu Pregnancy Kit: Purportedly 99% accurate if the directions are followed properly and the kit is stored under optimal conditions, they can detect HCG levels one day after the first missed period - so the test should, ideally, be positive about 10 days after the implantation bleeding.
