It sounds like you're having some spotting. Spotting can be a pain in the arse sometimes, but is not necessarily indicitive of something wrong. Many women experience spotting during the first few years of their cycle, or when starting/stopping hormonal birth control.

Is there a reason you are having unprotected sex? Unprotected sex puts you at risk for STIs and pregnancy ... If it's been less than 5 days since you had unprotected intercourse, you may want to consider getting the emergency contraceptive pill. Also, if you haven't done so already, you and your partner will need full STI screens.

Ahh ... As most of are users are trying to AVOID pregnancy, this is something you really need to tell us when you post.

Right now, i would say there's probably nothing wrong w/ you. Keep an eye on it, and if it continues over the next few days, you may want to see your doctor about it.

We don't really go by signs of pregnancy here ... The only accurate sign of pregnancy is a positive test. Early signs of pregnancy can mean so many other things ...
