On birth control. Started abnormal bleeding, feeling nausea, headache. Home pregnancy test negative. Am i pregnant?

Im 17 y/o I have not been on birth control for going on a year and a half now. The last couple months I have expierenced abnormal bleeding .In April I had my period and a couple weeks later I had light bleeding that started brown and very light pink and red. It only lasted a couple days with slight cramps my normal cycle is a full week. Again this month(may) I had my period which wasnt a full week like normal and now a week later I am expierencing bleeding again no real cramps and its light red. Should I be worried I have symptoms that could mean pregnancy but I honestly dont think I am.Now today I ve been crying off and on since about 11:15 am for no reason I am not sad but find myself crying just watching a commercial for ex. Certain foods and smells that usually dont bother me make me feel like I am going to vomit or give me a headache . I have also been having the feeling that I have to throw up when I burp but have not thrown up. I took a home pregnancy test about a week and half ago and is came up negative ... What is the possible causes?

Hello dear,
Sometimes when you have been taking pills, you start having break through bleeding, which occurs off and on, just like in your case. Nevertheless pregnancy cannot be ruled out. I suggest you repeat a pregancy test at home. Then see your doctor with the test results to decide further treatment. This breakthrough bleeding can be managed with some medication or the doctor may suggest some other form of contraception for you.
Take care
