Can I be pregnant?

Hello. I am 16 years old. I know that is too young to be on this website and asking these questions but I'm scared. I don't know what to do. And I don't know what's going on. Today is December 1st. I should be starting my period soon, but I usually begin my period very heavy and very dark in color. Yesterday I noticed a very light colored blood come out when I peed. It was only a little bit then went away. Today around 8 or 9 pm I felt like I was on my period and went to the restroom to check the pad I've been wearing just incase I started my period. It had a couple very dark red spots and I thought I had started. I peed and when I wiped myself the only thing on the toilet paper was the same light colored blood. When I wiped again it was gone. It was only a bit of blood. I haven't had any other types of symptoms...though on thanks giving I felt the need to pee a lot then only a few drops came out. It happened a few times then finally stopped. Other than that the light red blood is the only unusual thing I've experienced. I'm very scared because as you can see I'm really young. It was a stupid thing to do to have unprotected sex. He pulled out so I don't know how this could happen if it did. I don't want to tell my mom and me and my boyfriend are really scared. Some one please respond, can I be pregnant.?

Hi Heyyo

Thanks for your post! 

It sounds like your period is on it's way, I wouldn't worry yet. Sometimes periods take a couple of days to get going. If it doesn't come along in the next few days, take a pregnancy test but I think it'll be along soon. 

Always use condoms!

Thank you so much for replying! It actually did start this morning, and thanks for the advice I think we will use condoms from now on.
