Menstruation and Pregnancy

Patient

Q: I got my period on or around August 19-21st, 2014. I usually get my period on or a day after the 20th of every month, and it usually last 5-6 days. My period lasted until August 26 or 27 with the discharge just being dark brown/red. On September 6 I had unprotected sex for the first time in 2 years; it was very quick as he was going in and pulled out right away because he was going to come. He said there was nothing to worry about because he pulled out before he was even all the way in, but I'm still afraid I could get pregnant because I can't be sure he didn't come at least a little bit in me. Especially because on September 11(5 days after) I saw my discharge was brownish after peeing, which usually only happens when I'm about to get my period. Yesterday, the 12th, there was an increase in brown discharge with some blood and the discharge is thick and heavy like when I'm on my period. Today (the 13th) I woke up to pee and it's the same, but I actually have cramps and there was more blood when I wiped than there was yesterday. It's as if I'm getting my period early, but my breasts are not tender like usual. Is there a chance I could be pregnant? When can I take a pregnancy test?

Symptoms:  Thick, brown/red discharge; cramps; some blood
