Could I be pregnant?

Patient : Hi, My last cycle began on December 12. It was lighter than normal and lasted 6 days. On December 24 I had really light spotting again (which I never get between cycles - I am regular, every 26 days) then December 25 a large gush of blood then nothing. My period was due January 6 and I still have not started. I have sore breasts and some nausea as well as diffulty sleeping at night with exhaustion through the day. I have taken a home test but it came back negative. Is it possible that I am pregnant or what else could it be? Thank you!
