In brief: Not good.

The fact that you are having break through bleeding indicates that you are not ovulating .
A woman that is ovulating will have a menses every month. If you are not ovulating the chance of becoming pregnant is almost zero. You need to see an ob/gyn to evaluate your hormones your anovulation. If you are not ovulating regularly there are meds that can help you to produce an egg & get pregnant.

In brief: Why?

You are 18 years old.
Why are you hoping that you are getting pregnant. Life is short and you only get to be young once. Most 18-year-olds are thinking about going to college or what they're going to be when they grow up. Spend some time thinking about your reasons for wanting to get pregnant and schedule a visit to discuss them with your doctor.
