Yes: You can still be pregnant, because your menstrual period was unusually different from your normal mp and you basically had unprotected sex. So just check with a home pregnancy test.

Yes: Yes you could be pregnant. Many people have some bleeding or spotting in early pregnancy. Please call your doctor and get a blood pregnancy test. If a home pregnancy test is not positive and you have abnormal bleeding or you think you could be pregnant you still need a blood test.
