Implantation bleeding?

Patient

Q: Okay, so about a week and a half to two weeks ago, I got this period that wasn't really like a period. It was so weird, so the first day of this so called "period" started off really light, which is super weird for me because once my period starts, it comes on hard and doesn't get light till the 5th or 6th day. It was just brown blood, not enough to get in my underwear or anything. Then it completely went away for a whole day and then started up again, but this time it was light pink and still not enough to leak on to my underwear. I didn't have to wear a pad or anything! And then I bled bright red blood for about 2 days(on and off) and then on the 3rd day, it was barely there. Once again, didn't have to wear a pad or tampon or anything. Another thing that was really off about this period was that there was absolutely no cramping, none what so ever. That's extremely out of the ordinary for me because once I start my period (on the first day) my period cramps or so bad that I just sit in bed all day crying in pain. The only sort of pain I felt on this "period" lasted 20-30 seconds and it was this weird stretching/stabbing pain in my lower right abdominal area and I believe it occurred on the second day of the "period" when the bright red blood occurred. This "period" of mine occurred approximately 10-12 days after ovulation and only lasted about 3-4 days. Also, this period occurred about 5 days to a week before my period was suppose to be due. My concern is that it's implantation bleeding, but I'm not sure because it was bright red for 2 days and had some clots, but not big ones like I usually get. Like I said in the beginning of this question, it's been about 1 and 1/2 weeks to 2 weeks I just started having really weird symptoms. Well, a couple of days ago I started getting increased mucus and thought I was getting a cold, but it never hits. I just sneeze a lot and my nose runs a little bit. As of today, I started becoming so overheated. Like, my whole face is red because my body temperature is increased. Also, I'm very itchy and I'm having an insane amount of increased saliva production. Also today, I started feeling quesy to my stomach, so much that I went to the bathroom a couple times and gagged over the toilet. Maybe I'm just siking myself out that I am pregnant, but these symptoms are just really weird and any advice would be greatly appreciated. Also, I should mention that my boyfriend and I are having unprotected sex everyday and not pulling out. And I am not on any method of birth control. I know I should take a pregnancy test soon, but I feel like if I see a negative, I'll feel crazy and slightly dissapointed.

Symptoms:  Sneezing, overheated, increased mucus production, queasy
