Delayed periods, vaginal spotting, dark red, orange discharge. Pregnancy or miscarriage?

Hi my period is a week late and this morning I started spotting. It started out an odd orangish red color then turned brown then a dark brownish red color and now it is back to that odd orangish red color it started out as. It is only seen when I wipe not on the pad Im wearing or anything. What could this mean??? Is there a possibility I could still be pregnant??? Could I be miscarrying without knowing I was pregnant???

Thanks for your quer.
An abnormal period could be normal, or could be pregnancy or a related complication like a miscarriage.
Please take a urine pregnancy test at home right away to test for pregnancy or a miscarriage.
Take care.
