Hello, Mandyt!

Thank you for posting.

Implantation bleeding is light bleeding that happens in some women 10 to 14 days after conceiving a baby. 

According to the American Pregnancy Association, these are the key differences between implantation bleeding and a period:
1. Color.  Most women are familiar with the color of their period (usually a bright to dark red). Implantation bleeding, however, is typically light pink to dark brown (rust-colored) in color.
2. Clotting.  Some women experience clotting during their menstruation, while some do not see much at all. Implantation bleeding, however, should not present any clots.
3. Amount.  Most women are able to fill pads and tampons during their periods, but with implantation bleeding, it is different. Implantation bleeding is usually only spotting or a light flow rather than a full flow. Typically, implantation bleeding is a little pink or brown discharge only when a woman wipes or just enough to get on a pantyliner. It may be either intermittent or a more constant light flow. 

Trying to get pregnant can be exciting but also stressful which, among things, can throw your cycle off. So, your period might very well be early this month.
