If you haven't a normal period since the unprotected sex, then it is possible that you could be pregnant and that the light bleeding was implantation bleeding.

So you need to take a pregnancy test - since it's been more than two weeks since you had unprotected sex, you can do that right now and get an accurate answer.

If you aren't pregnant, the test will enable you to stop worrying. But if you are pregnant, you need to know as soon as possible so you can decide what to do next.
