Confusion over whether I am pregnant or not


Q: Hi All, Just looking for some advice really.... I'm confused about whether or not I am actually pregnant. My last period started on 26th February, but unlike normal, I had no period pains and only had light spotting for two days (not the normal 6-7 days of heavy bleeding I get). I'm now getting stomach pains above my public line, the top of my stomach and the mainly the right side of my stomach. The sensation I feel at the side is more like a tingling feeling as opposed to pain. I've been getting easily bloated recently and have been sick on a couple of occasions. Tea is leaving a funny taste in my mouth and I've started being really fussy over my food. My heart beat seems to speed up sometimes though more when I am getting the stomach pains so thinking that may be linked? Due to problems whilst being on my period (sickness, headaches etc.) the Dr has told me to run three packs of pills together so I only have four periods a year! (Sounds great, not sure the pain is worth it sometimes. Lol). I did a hpt yesterday, the first line appeared, as did the second but after a while the thick, clear fist line seemed to just fade away!! Does this mean I'm not pregnant? Would it be too early to test?
