Brief Answer:
possible implantation bleed.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query toHCM,
As the ovulation kit test was positive a week back, then you must have ovulated by Saturday. And as by today you are 5 days post ovulation and you have been sexually active, there is all possibility that this may be an implantation bleed and not your menses.
The earliest you can confirm pregnancy would be 7 days post last intercourse or simple 3 days from now, with a serum beta hcg test. If the hcg levels are more than 3mIU, then you are surely pregnant and the present bleed is definitely implantation in that case.
