Thanks for nice query.     

Delayed periods can be due to many reasons and pregnancy is one of them.

Pregnancy is the most common cause of delayed periods.

Pinkish red color discharge which gets dissolved immediately don`t signifies anything, as for as pregnancy is concerned.

So the best option for you is to get urine for pregnancy test done after 7-10 days are over ( UPT becomes positive on 40 days conception )or get the ultrasound done to confirm the pregnancy only after 15 days are over.

By that time you must start taking folic acid, which is very essential in the peri-conception phase as it prevents many congenital malformations in the fetus.

Ultrasound is must to confirm viable live intra uterine pregnancy, but it generally gives good result after 6-7 weeks of pregnancy.
