If you have regular 28-30 day cycles, then the spotting could be due to ovulation. There is no necessity for cramping to always accompany spotting, or vice versa. The spotting would usually be seen for a couple of days only and if it persists, you should suspect some hormonal imbalance causing a withdrawal bleed and get managed for that. Please wait for your next cycle and get a HPT only if you are 3-7 days post a missed period with a fresh early morning sample of urine. If you wish for an earlier and better confirmation, you can go for the blood test for pregnancy. Hope this helps.
