Thanks for posting your query.
The symptoms that you have are more likely to be due to a pregnancy. The mild spotting that you had is likely to be an implantation bleeding. It is best to get a urine test done using a highly sensitive pregnancy test kit available over the counter.
In case the test comes negative then other causes like hormonal imbalance needs to be considered.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.

Thanks for writing again.
If the pregnancy test is negative then a hormonal imbalance is likely. The home pregnancy test kits are 97% accurate. The treatment for vaginosis is not likely to delay your periods.
You need to get your hormonal profile evaluated under the guidance of a gynecologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.
Hope my answer is helpful.
