Possible: At that time in your cycle you are probably ovulating. Spotting at the time of ovulation is common. Conception also is most likely to happen at the time of ovulation. So you could conceive at that time.

We do not ever guess: Spotting in and of itself is in no way a sign of pregnancy. Two weeks before a period is usually just past the time of ovulation. It would be physically impossible for a female's body to know physically that it was pregnant that early!

Irregular periods: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test . There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit.
