Thanks for the query.

If you had your regular and normal period (in duration and flow) then there is less possibility for pregnancy.
Just by symptoms we cannot confirm the pregnancy as these type of symptoms can also be seen in other conditions like irritable bowel syndrome etc.
If you think that your period was abnormal like with shorter duration or with scanty flow etc better to check for pregnancy once.
Go for blood test or urine test for pregnancy which will clarify the doubt.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
