Hi Anonymous,

Try to relax. Have you had unprotected sex, which is leading you to believe you may be pregnant?

Implantation bleeding normally occurs one week before your period is due. However, it also sounds like this can be a sign of an oncoming period. If you do not get your period and miss it by more than a week then please take another pregnancy test. 

Good luck,
