My heart has been beating very fast while resting, my cheeks are flushed. I had light spotting today. That doesn't necessarily mean pregnancy does it?

Uncertain.: If pregnancy testing proves negative, there are other possible causes of your symptoms, including thyroid disease, fever of any cause, and some rare problems such as a neuroendocrine tumor. Your doctor should be able to provide the necessary diagnostic testing.
