You could possibly: be pregnant but I doubt it with the depo shot> check a pregnancy test and be sure.

Could be either.: Ideally DepoProvera should be administered during your menses so your next ovulation would be blocked and you couldn't get pregnant. So, an injection mid cycle would not block or suppress ovulation and hence with unprotected intercourse one could become pregnant. Break through bleeding is common after you receive the first Depo injection. A pregnancy test will be necessary. Hope this helps!
