Brief Answer:
A hormonal variation likely.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
You had a lighter than normal period. The watery bloody discharge for 2 days is not suggestive of a pregnancy. The change in blood flow can be due to a minor hormonal variation. You can confirm this further by doing a home pregnancy test with the early morning sample of urine.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.

Brief Answer:
Pregnancy not likely.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing again.
Having intercourse just 5 days before the expected period is very less likely to cause a pregnancy. The light bleeding can be due to a hormonal variation. If pregnancy test comes negative then there is no need to worry. You can get an ultrasound scan doen to rule out any ectopic pregnancy if the test comes positive.
Hope my answer is helpful.
