Always possible: Pregnancy always a possibility especially if not using birth control. You can sometimes have unusual bleeding early in a pregnancy. Do a home pregnancy test which are very accurate. If questions remain then see your doctor.

Yes: If you have had unprotected intercourse and your period wasn't normal, you could be pregnant. Do a pregnancy test and, if it is negative, repeat it in 3-5 days to be sure. Unless you want to conceive, now is the time to see someone and start a reliable method of contraception so that you don't have to worry. Hope this helps.

Maybe. Maybe not.: Can do a urine pregnancy test, if worried. It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period.
