Pregnancy with bleeding?

I am 18 years old and just found out I was pregnant, im not sure how far along I am but I took 5 different home test and they all said I was. The night before last I had really bad cramping all through the night and in the morning when I used the restroom I was bleeding, I have had about 2 or 3 blood clots in my blood. I am currently wearing a pad because I am still bleeding, at first it wasnt really red, it was like a light color sort of orangeish but after the blood clots, my blood got a lot more red. Im not sure what is going on, am I having a miscarriage? If you need more information on what is going on, just ask, im not sure exactly what all I need to tell you. All I know is that im scared, ive seen some sites on the internet with a few different answers to what is going on and it scares me so I just need to talk to a real doctor. I dont have insurance so I wanted to talk to you first so that I can sort of know what is going on. I hope you can help me out.

As mentioned by you, the bleeding seems to be large enough to force you to use pads. This bleeding after the Urine Pregnancy test positivity seems to be an abortion. Never panic. The bleeding doesn?t mean to be Complete Abortion. It could be Threatened Abortion too, which is manageable and protect the pregnancy if promptly seen by a doctor. Even if it is Incomplete you have to see the doctor to evacuate the other products of conception for your safety. During pregnancy , the most common reason for light bleeding is implantation. Implantation bleeding occurs when the fertilized egg implants itself in the uterine lining and usually occurs about 10 to 14 days after conception. Bleeding caused by implantation is very light, often the only sign you might notice that indicates implantation has occurred is a small (can be as small as a pinhead followed by no further bleeding) spot of blood left on your panties. We suggest you to see gynecologist for further treatment and management.
