Maybe: If your cycles are irregular , then your ovulation is also irregular, so yes pregnancy is a possibility. Spotting can be caused from many different issues from infection to cysts, but is most commonly due to hormonal irregularities. If the spotting is persistent then following up with your provider would be recommended.

If not pregnant,: recheck a pregnancy test to be sure, this likely irregular ovulation, could be from insulin resistance/polycystic ovarian syndrome.

Light period: If unsure a pregnancy test could help reassure you. Symptoms could be pregnancy, or ovarian cyst, or just cycle variation.
