Yes: Sometimes bleeding can occur in early pregnancy at the time of implantation, about a week before the expected period. If you have symptoms or miss your period, then get a test.

Yes: You can certainly have spotting when a pregnancy is very early. It can even continue for the first several weeks. I recommend doing a pregnancy test the first day after what would have been your regular period date to check for pregnancy.

Yes..: Ovulation happens more or less around that time in most women depending on your cycle length( 21-35 days normally), so it is possible to get pregnant around that time.

Doubtful,...: If you indeed had a period,that simply came 3 days early, it is doubtful you are pregnant, as it is not "uncommon" for periods to be a few days early or late. If you had unprotected sex mid cycle when you ovulate, then you are at increased risk of getting pregnant. You can always do a preg test. If you do not want to get pregnant-see the Dr. for Birth control & use condoms also to prevent STI's

Yes that's when: most women tend to ovulate, between day 10 and day 20 of the cycle (with day 24-26 as the start of your period).
