Pregnancy test: If you're more than a few days late for your period then you should check a pregnancy test. The spotting could be implantation bleeding/spotting. If not pregnant, it may be that you skipped ovulation. Either way at 16, you should be using condoms at the very least and it is likely time to see your physician about getting started on birth control.

Yes: Yes, you can be pregnant. Run a pregnancy test.
