Thank you for choosing XXXXXXX As you had unprotected intercourse and as the paragaurd came out subsequently, there is possibility of getting pregnant. The chances of a woman getting pregnant as a result of having sex once, without contraception, is abound 30% at the woman's most fertile time. Because the SPERM CAN SURVIVE FOR 5 DAYS, and a single sperm is enough to fertilize the egg, and as you were in your most fertile period during the act of coitus.
To conclude, there could be 2 possibilities
1)Implantation bleeding due to pregnancy------Though the pregnancy test is negative, I suggest you to wait for one more week and repeat the home pregnancy test, if that is positive kindly get a scan done to localize the site of pregnancy.
2)or It could be normal menstrual bleeding. In that case you can try any other contraceptive measure which suits you.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow-ups. If you like my answers kindly rate it, and write a review as well. Please do not forget to accept it.
Thank you,
Wish you good health.
