I just started a light bleeding a week after taking Plan B. Is this normal or could I be pregnant?

I had my period less than a week before having sex. ending sometime between thursday and saturday. The following Wednesday, I was hanging out with a guy who I had been talking to and things got intense. We had unprotected sex, but i made him stop way before he was done because I started to freak out, unplanned and unprotected isn't something I do. He did not ejaculate inside me or at all. But I know you can still become pregnant from precum. The next day, about 12 hours later he went with me to get plan B one step. A few days later on sunday I found out i have strep and mono, On monday, I started feeling nauseated. I didn't know if the meds for the strep or the mono could be causing me the nausea or could i be pregnant. Now it's wednesday (6 days after plan B and 7 days after sex) and I just saw a light pink colored blood when I went to the bathroom. Is this something normal? is this from Plan B, or am I Pregnant? I'm freaking out because I tend to over think and I'm really scared.

Hi Jordan Davis,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Most women will experience bleeding after taking an emergency pill.  You will need to wait until your period is due and take a home pregnancy test.

Thank you for answering. I'm just terrified and have no one to talk to.
