Be cool: with an LMP of 2/12 you probably became pregnant around March 1, meaning you tested positive at about a week (quite possible with modern testing) and are now in the second week of pregnancy. Spotting is very common, and can indicate impending loss. But often not. Trying not to stress out, lots of fluids, and rest are all a good idea. And retest or consult your practitioner.
