thank you for your query.
After 3 negative tests, it is rare that you would be pregnant.
However, confirmatory would only be check up with a gynecologist and a blood B HCG test or a pelvic ultrasound.
rarely, a light period could be a normal occurence.
Other causes that could be involved are stress, anxiety, weight gain or loss, intake of hormonal medications in the previous cycle, thyroid disorders or polycystic ovaries.
if you fail to have your normal period in a day or two, you would be best advised to consult a Gynecologist.
Take care.

Thanks for the query.
Some amount of fluctuations in pattern of the menstrual flow are common.
If you had unprotected intercourse around the time of ovulation, then there is possibility of pregnancy. In that case the bleeding you had could be implantation bleeding.
Sometimes urine pregnancy test kits can give false positive results, so you better go for blood test for pregnancy to get more accurate result.
Take care.
