Brief Answer:
May be your periods or withdrawal bleed.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome to HCM.

As you have got bleeding around the expected time of your menses, so its difficult to say whether its withdrawal bleeding or your normal periods.

Anyhow, bleeding indicates that you are not pregnant.

Hope this helps.
Feel free to ask further.
Thanks.
