Hard to say. If it's around your ovulation time, it could be ovulation spotting.

At the same time, I know you had some pregnancy concerns before, so have you also been tested for sexually transmitted infections (since if pregnancy was a risk, so were STIs)? I ask that because sometimes unexplained spotting is about an infection, so always good to rule that out.

No I haven't been tested however I know I can't have any sti's. And I usually do not ovulate this soon because my cycles aren't that short..so..

As I understand it, you've only been charting for a month or so, correct?

If that's the case -- if you don't have at least a few months of charts under your belt -- I'd not make any assumptions yet about when you ovulate.

its been about 2 months, but I understand your point. But I've never had spotting before either except the couple days after my period..that's why I'm worried..

But if you also haven't been observing at this level, you may have and just may not have noticed.

Again though, by all means, if you would prefer to check in with your healthcare provider about this and some of your other questions, by all means, go ahead and do that.

Alright thank you..I really appreciate it..even if I was ovulating earlier than I was thinking I would, the spotting couldn't be implantation bleeding could it? Like that would be too early for it right? Don't get me wrong I'm 99.9% sure I've had no prenancy threats and definitely no ejaculate has come near me in the past month, but I just thought I'd be sure..

If you couldn't have had any STI risks, you couldn't have had any pregnancy risks either.

As I have before, I'm going to encourage you to either let go of the attachment you've voiced being concerned any bleeding is implantation bleeding OR for you to just take a pregnancy test. You've been worrying about this for a considerable period of time, so I'm not sure I understand why, if you remain concerned, you don't just put an end to this and take a test.

I don't have the avaiable resources to test and if I
knew if it wasn't possible to be somehing like implantation bleeding then I wouldn't need to test but if it was possible I could look out for other signs..the only possible risk I had was my boyfriend and I were fooling around last saturday and I touched his penis from the outside (over his boxers) and may have gotten some pre cum on my fingers and then wiped at the bathroom.

Just so you know, walk-in clinics often offer free pregnancy testing. As well, I'm sure you and your boyfriend could come up with $10 to test so you can let this go. Seriously, if you can figure out how to have private time together, you can figure out how to raise $10.

What you suggest, again, does not pose a risk. However, you keep being so worried about this, no matter what we tell you, that my only sound advice I can give is either to a) stop with any sexual contact if it's going to make you worry constantly like this, and/or b) get it together and get a test.

I think I have given you this before, but just in case, please read this as well: Chicken Soup for the Pregnancy Symptom Freakout's Soul.
