Period, no, bleeding: Yes. Light period like bleeding is a common symptom of pregnancy, however, it should stop fairly quickly. I suggest seeing your doctor to get evaluated if you're pregnant and spotting.

Yes: While there is a optimal time to get pregnant each month, as long as the egg and sperm are around each other it is possible. Also younger women tend to have more variation on when they ovulate. Consider using condoms and/or birth control if you don't wish to become pregnant.
