Irregular bleed: It could be that you had a cycle where you didn't ovulate, but this could also be implantation bleeding from a new pregnancy. It maybe too early to have a positive pregnancy test with the brand name you are using. If you're not using protection, this might be a good time to see your physician for birth control and get a serum pregnancy test.

No worry: If you are having your period, as it seems, you are not pregnant. If period is less than your usual, you may repeat the test in 4-5 days. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may wish to consider an implanted contraceptive. Always practice safe sex. Get vaccine for HPV.
