Take a test: There is only one way to find out if you are pregnant. If you think you might be pregnant check then check a home pregnancy test. They are cheap, reliable and available at any pharmacy.

Menses/Pregnancy: Some women do have some bleeding at the start of a normal pregnancy that the assume was a period. This bleeding may be different than their usual periods but may not be. However, the majority of the time when bleeding occurs at the regular time for a period it is a period. Bleeding and amount of clotting can and does change from month to month, if you wonder about pregnancy take a home test.

Maybe: If you're not sure if your pregnant, do a test. If you are pregnant and bleeding that heavily, you need to see your GYN to find out what's going on.
