I'm spotting in my mid cycle. Am I possibly pregnant?

I'm an 18 year old woman and I'm worried that I might be pregnant. Me and my boyfriend had a sensual day on May 2 (CD 9) . My period stopped in April 29, which is my CD 6. Me and my boyfriend did a lot of naughty stuff on May 2, but we didn't have penetrative sex. The closest thing we had was we dry humped each other with our underwear on. Though we both became extremely wet from all our bodily fluids, he didn't ejaculate anywhere near my vagina. He didn't even finished while we we're dry humping. He just finished when he asked a hand job when we were fully clothed because he felt unaccomplished. Those details out of the way, we understand that humping has a really really really slim chance of me getting pregnant, that's why we don't want to have sex yet. But then days after that, I've noticed that I'm having white vaginal discharge. I assumed that this is just because of my ovulation. but then more days after, May 12 (CD 19) night to be exact, I spotted on my underwear. I saw it was color brownish/dark reddish in color and it was thick and gooey in my underwear. I got extremely scared because I've read articles about pregnancy and I was thinking if this was Implantation bleeding. I got really scared because neither of me or my bf are ready to be parents, or even have the power to become parents yet. Then May 13 (CD 20) came and I woke up without nothing on my pad. Then I went out for my morning choir practice and when I came back home I noticed I have dark red spots on my pad, kinda looked more of a period blood. Very different from the brown discharge that I saw last night. Then I changed pads. On 11:30am-12:00nn, I noticed this time that I have that gooey brownish/pinkish/reddish blood again, kinda looked more like yesterday's. Then I checked again at 7:00PM and it just looked like some leftover discharge went out because I saw it's brownish/light brownish blood. Today, May 14 (CD 21), I woke up with spots again but now the brownish discharge that I got was thicker than yesterday morning's one. I checked on the afternoon but I released nothing.

Is this just ovulation bleeding or really implantation spotting? I'm really scared. I don't want to be a parent yet. Am I pregnant or maybe I'm just over analyzing things? Please reply. I'm gonna take my home pregnancy test tomorrow morning. Please reply early, thank you so much. I wish my details can help you guys.

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for writing.

If you did not have sex, you can't be pregnant. You can't get pregnant from dry humping which is nothing more than making out with clothes on. The discharge and spotting are normal.

Stress over thinking you could be pregnant can impact your cycle so try to relax.
