In brief: Well,

Usually you have the normal signs of pregnancy: morning sickness, tender breasts and missed period.
Ectopic pregnancy could manifest with vaginal bleeding but the usually the presenting symptom is severe abdominal pain due the tubal rupture and bleeding in abdominal cavity. If severe one can go in shock as well, depending of the bleeding. This is usually a medical emergency!
