Is this normal?

I have never had sex, but I have had oral sex before. A penis has never been near my vagina in fact. My periods are never really regular, seeing as how I am only 16, but I did have a normal period last month around May 14th lasting around four days. I got my period May 17th and it started out pretty light, but got heavier. Now today, the 19th, it is not heavy at all. I have been nauseated for days and am still experiencing slight cramps in my lower abdomen. I was wondering if this normal? Is there any possibility I could be pregnant?

Yes, I have never had sexual intercourse before, but I have also never had such a short period. It was fairly heavy and started out like a normal period, but it only lasted two days. By now, it is almost completely gone. I just have a little spotting, but I am still having some mild cramps. Is that normal?

You mentioned May 17th...I did not realize you were referring to June 17-June 19th as your period.

Yes, it is normal to have a shorter-than-usual period. How do you know it's your period? It began about the time you expected it; 21-35 days after your previous period (mid-May).

If your last period was May 17th, and today is June 19th, then your current period indicates you are not pregnant. Obviously, you are also not pregnant if you have "never had a penis near your vagina" in your own words.

Your period can be light, heavy, different colors (pink, brown, red), last for 3-5 days....these are all normal variations of a period. You can read more at: How to know if your period is normal".
