Yes/no: It sounds like you actually never had a confirmed pregnancy to begin with. To know whether it is a miscarriage or not, you would need to have the tissue examined in the lab or do blood pregnancy tests to check the level of HCG (pregnancy hormone).

Check home preg test: While it is possible that it may be an early miscarriage, checking a home pregnancy test will help. If not pregnant, then not a miscarriage. If positive pregnancy test, then it may be possible but would need further evaluation with physician. Bleeding is not uncommon during early pregnancies that result in full-term live births.

Pregnancy test: Have you done a pregnancy test? If positive, it is possible that you have had a miscarriage. Please see your doctor sooner if you are worried.
