thanks for posting your query to HCM.
Now the first thing is don't be panicky and scared. According to you there were old and fresh blood stains - so this is not at all symptom of pregnancy. Rather is a sign that you have not conceived, as bleeding is possible only either by slight trauma or during normal menses. Follow one of the three things below
1.If your period is due then wait till the next due date of the period.
2.If you have not missed the period then be happy there is no pregnancy.
3.If you have missed the period then how long is it- If more than 7 days then can perform Preg card test which is very very cheap test. Now if you say that still you are panicky and want to perform the test earliest then should also know that the test is best interpreted after 21st day of last period. If you are within 21 days of last period then also wait for some time. Other wise if you don't want to waste your money then just wait for the due date and relax in between. Even if the test comes positive there are certain tablets which can be taken within 45 days of missed period to abort pregnancy under medical supervision.
So calm down and be stress free.
With best wishes,

good evening

i think pregnancy rapid test is very cheap,you can do it in home with your urine sample,or you can go for ultrasound which will give us exact diagnosis

but in early pregnancy urine rapid test is best one which can tell you weather you are pregnant or not,or you can check it with the help of blood sample for pregnancy
