Is it possible to get period like bleeding during pregnancy?

Hi there,
I've read stories online of women who never got a positive hpt because their hcg levels were too low or when they finally got a positive hpt, they were 20-21 weeks far in pregnancy. Is this true, can this happen?

I've also read that some women never show a positive on hpt, but they do on blood test! How does that work?

And I've read that some women get period like vaginal bleeding during their first trimester.

Can pregnant women get light period like bleeding during first 4 months of pregnancy?

I had 4 negative hpts and I've never missed a period yet after sex, but my November period lasted for only 2 days when normally my period lasts 5 days. So I'm assuming that was implantation bleeding and my periods after that would last for 5 days, but it would either be different in flow, color, or pain!
Based on that information, Could I be pregnant?

I am not in the position to see a Gynecologist or get a blood test done. And my worries are bothering me 24/7. Please help!
Thanks! looking forward to your reply
