Can you clarify your question? Did you have sex 2 weeks ago then again 3 or 4 days ago or you had spot bleeding 3 or 4 days ago and again yesterday because the answer is completely different. You also forgot to tell us when your next expected period is or when you had your last period.

Conception occurs within day or so of the sex. It takes about 3 weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG for a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully.
