Thanks for the query.

High prolactin levels are not seen in early pregnancy.If you are mid cycle,and have cramping and spotting it could be ovulatory pain.
You need to miss a period and test positive for pregnancy before you can be confirmed as pregnant.
You prolactin levels are high,and you should be on medication.
I would also suggest a ultrasound if you havent had one.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any follow up queries I will be available to answer them.
