Brief Answer:
Maybe a implantation bleeding.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,

Thanks for trusting us about your health care.

I can understand your concern here.

Your symptoms can be due to implantation bleeding or it can be due to your period coming in few days.

But before giving my opinion about i, I want to ask a few questions from you.

Have you done an unprotected sex?
Have you done your home urine pregnancy test?
Are you having any other symptoms?
Are you taking any type of medication or on pills?

Please revert back to me with my answers.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Regards
