You could be pregnant but you could also just be stressed out. Stress can make your period late or even keep you from having one. You could have been stressed and not ovulated. You could have been stressed and not had one altogether. I suggest you take a pregnancy test.

In my opinion, pregnancy symptoms are very similar to symptoms you get when you have your period (tender breasts/nipples, cramps, bloating, fatigue, mood changes etc.). The only way to find out is to take a test.

One week after your period is abnormal to have ovulated. What is your cycle like? Are you standard 28 days? Ovulation is about 10 days after your period (give or take). I don't think that you are pregnant. To be pregnant you also need to be sexually active and not use protection. Spotting could be related to other factors in your life, particularly stress but could also be medication related, particularly new Birth Control pill types /formulations. Track your progress and if you miss your period (and are normally regular with it) then grab a test kit and check your HCG levels. Until then (about a months time) you cannot definitively know unless you get a blood test.

Can you still get your period while being pregnant?

Yes you can. While being pregnant you can still have spotting, which is often confused as a light period. You can still have a healthy child with this going on. If you know that you are pregnant and begin spotting, you should go to you doctor at once. Although if you are ignorant of being pregnant you can still have a healthy child, it is a sign that something is wrong.

Typically the first spotting occurs during implantation. Some women don't experience ANY spotting. This is normal.

What does it mean if you are spotting?

Spotting is what happens when just a little of the menstrual blood comes out in the middle of your cycle(when you're not expecting a period at all) or it is a sign that your normal flow is about to begin. Spotting is usually light in color, and doesn't require a hefty sized napkin to clean up. But I am on birth control and I am actually expecting to be on my period and it is very light in color and only lasted for one day. is there something wrong? Am i pregnant? I shouldn't be, or is it not healthy for me to take this birth control anymore?

Sometimes periods do begin with brown blood. If your period was normal flow for you then it means nothing except that it started with old blood. If your period was very light or spotting then you need to perform a pregnancy test in 2-3 weeks.
