Pale Pink Menstrual Blood?

Okay, well I am only 18, so I know I'm not perimenopausal or anything ._.
A few weeks ago (about 3 weeks?), I had a 2-week long period, and it was mostly brown, just slightly tinted red. It was like this the month before too. At the end of last week, I started menstruating again (only a week in between this time and last time). All of this was light bleeding, MUCH lighter than I'm used to. I usually menstruate rather heavily, so I'm more than a little concerned.

I'd assumed the light period was due to the amount of stress I've been under lately (school, tests, we're on the verge of losing the house, etc), but ever since it started again with the pale pink color, again, I've been concerned. Everything I've read says I may be pregnant... I am indeed sexually active, so... Could I be pregnant? D:

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Depends, if you had unprotected sex while on your fertile days.  You might need to take a home pregnancy test. 

Here are some resources for you
