Metallic taste in mouth, stomach burning, backache, brown discharge, cramps, no periods. Implantation spotting?

hello. i need advice on one matter. I got married in April, 2011. Since then we are ttc. I had my last period on the 3rd of Feb, 2012. (not much heavy, just a 3-5 day cycle, bleeding till three days and little on the fourth and fifth day). I had ovulation bleeding on day 14 of my cycle (i.e., Feb 16) (P.S: i had never had ovulation bleeding before) which lasted 1.5 days (slight bleeding). Me and my husband had sex 1day before i ovulated and on the day of ovulation, and a day after ovulation (Not afterwards up till now have we had sex). (i.e., Feb 14,16 and 17). On Feb 22, i felt i had a metallic taste in my mouth which lasted a day only. On Feb 23 i started feeling a burning in my stomach which has never happened to me even before a Period. I had backache just for a while. I had my period expected on the 1st of March, 2012 (since, Feb=29days). I didnot have my period, instead on 4th of March, i started spotting some brown/orange-pink discharge (small 2-3 spots only when i wiped) i didnt bleed, just slight spotting off and on the whole day, and 1 spot the other day(a bit red). Thats about it. I felt like i was getting period like cramps the whole while till my periods. but NO periods. is this Implantation Spotting? Secondly, i feel like im discharging, i have some slight pain/acidity in my abdomen. i feel tired and sleepy all the time (even after ovulation i felt tired and sleepy). i get headaches for half n hour or less off and on. when i walk alot i get a pain like period cramps and it goes away when i take some rest. i had done a pregnancy home test before my period date was due and it came out negative. i took a HCG on the day i spotted (March 4) but it came out negative. I had high temperature the whole day. Throughout i had high temp but not as high as compared to the one i had the day i spotted. I havent had my period as per yet. Im confused. My whole body feels like im pregnant, but i am so unsure. (P.S: can it be that it wasnt ovulation bleeding, but irregular periods? i have never had irregular periods before. i am so confused. i got a TVS done on the 12th day and the follicle size was 20-left ovary, 9-right ovary, and i had light bleeding for 2 days off and on on the 14th day.) Regards, Maria*

1.implantation occurs 13 th day after fertilisation but definitely your urine pregnancy test would be positive. can have irregular periods if you have weight gain or loss abruptly. are married for one year and you have not used contraception so you have to meet a gynaecologist for evaluation of infertility as a couple.
4. irregular cycles can be because of thyroid problem also so do a blood test to rule out the same
