Brief Answer:
YES she could be pregnant.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for your query. I can understand your concerns.

YES she could be pregnant.

But sometimes home urine pregnancy tests are not correct.

I will advise you to get a blood pregnancy BHCG test now.

That will be confirmatory.

Feel free to consult me directly

Last night she had so slight bleeding and not like periods

And white discharge is the morning

How do I get the exact confirmation since all home test kits showed negative pregnancy

Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:

Get a transvaginal sonography.

That will be the most confirmatory for pregnancy.

Not only that , even if she is not pregnant it will be able to tell what is causing her symptoms and why.
