Sore, tired, growing waist

I have been having really odd symptoms. I had two very sketchy, light brown periods with some tissue in them. I am tired all of the time, my back hurts, I can't sleep no matter what I try, and my abdomen feels as if it is bruised when I touch it. On top of this, my waist has grown one inch (it has been 26 inches for 8 years now) and my belly is taking on a rounded form. I have taken 4 negative hpt's, three diff brands.

More background- I am 21 years old, female, last sexually active just over 5 weeks ago. Been on b/c for over a year and a half.
