First of all, you should undergo a blood test for beta hCG or TVS scan (around 4 weeks) to confirm or exclude pregnancy.

If you get negative result again, then other reasons of irregular spotting like hormonal imbalance, stress/ anxiety, ovarian cyst, thyroid problem, wt gain/ extreme loss, irregular eating habits etc. are needed to be ruled out properly.

Here you need some investigation to rule out underlying pathology by USG pelvis,Thyroid profile, LH/ FSH, Blood estrogen & progesterone level etc. So consult with your doctor and take suggestive measures.

Avoid stress,take healthy diet with iron supplements,control body wt and need proper sleep.

Take care.
