Hi, Laz. Welcome to Scarleteen! It is impossible to maintain a pregnancy and have a normal period. Therefore, it doesn't sound like you could be pregnant. If your irregular periods are worrying or you're not feeling well, see your doctor. Hope this helps!
It couldn't hurt to go to a local Planned Parenthood or family planning health center for a visit including a pregnancy test. I work for a feminist clinic and find that even in situations where pregnancy is unlikely, it holds value as it rules out the slim possibility and offers peace of mind. If the test is negative, a practitioner can explore other causes for your irregular periods and may recommend sexually transmitted infection screening or an pelvic exam to rule out gynecological abnormalities.
As far as pregnancy, it's not uncommon for women to experience some degree of bleeding, especially in the first trimester but it's not a true menses and either the pattern, length, or flow differs from a "normal period". When in doubt, it never hurts to check it out.
