Is this a normal period, could I be pregnant, or having a chemical miscarriage?

I had unprotected on 5/21 sex 2 days before my expected period on 5/23. My period was late I didnt get it until 5/28. My period has been light pink for 6 days it's so light I don't even need a pad I only would see it when I wiped. Also it was on and off. Yesterday for about an hour it was slightly heavier and only a few drops were on my panty liner then it went back to barely visible and I only see the light pink color when I wipe. Yesterday when I experienced the heavy bleeding I did get cramps, a headache, and just felt tired. Now since I had the heavier period I'm just having cramps that are just non stop.

Dear Bri593

Thank you for writing.

I have no way to know this with any certainty. It seems to me your period was slow in starting, which can sometimes happen. See your doctor if you are still concerned and/or the bleeding continues markedly longer than usual.
