Could this be implantation bleeding?

Patient : Hi. I'm worried I might be pregnant. I had sex four days ago, and I'm on birth control but I took it 6 hours late that night. Also, I didn't take two weeks of the previous month, but I had been back on it for a week by the time I had sex. We also used a condom. I have a small amount of brown spotting, though, and I'm worried it's implantation bleeding. It started yesterday and got a little heavier today. It's only been 4 days, though. Does that mean it's definitely not that? Could I be pregnant? What's the earliest I could take a test, if I should? Thanks.
