Doctor

A:   HI,
Thanks for the query.
I understand your concern.
Minor variations in menstrual cycles can be seen due to many causes.
As your blood test for pregnancy is nnegative, there is very less possibility for pregnancy.
Pink discharge you are having is possibly indicating premenstrual spotting, which may turn into regular menstrual flow soon.
And cramping etc may also indicating onset of periods.
Take care.
