In brief: Perhaps

Might be a late period starting or you could be pregnant.
Consider retaking pregnancy test in a week if still no period. Take care.

In brief: Possible

It is possible to have some spotting when a fertilized egg is implanting.
You can recheck a urine pregnancy test in another week or see your doctor and ask about a serum or blood pregnancy test to know for sure.
