Miscarriage or everything is going normal

Patient

Q: Hi! i have been pregnant for 6 weeks now.my last period date was 29.09.11.i have been having on.off pinkish vaginal discharge. on Thursday 10.11.11 i had quite a lot of discharge with slight pink blood in it. i went in emergency and they booked me for scan on 11.11.11. when i went in for scan i thought i should be 6 weeks and 2 days but scan showed i am about 5. when i asked my midwife she said its 5.6. they were only able to see sac and yolk no baby yet. when i came back i had a spot of blood in the night time it was only little and then pink discharge similarly the next afternoon. then it stopped and had slight again on monday. i have back pain and sometimes i get pinching pain either on left or either on right side. i asked my nurse whether i am having a miscarriage she said only next scan will show. in week 5 and 6 we only look sac and yolk. and she said we don't tell people yet because anxiety can cause problems. i was wondering if you could tell me that what are my chances that i am having a miscarriage? i definitely know i ovulated on CD14 of my cycle. my next scan is booked on 21.11.11. i just want to prepare my self for worst? i have very small sypmtoms such as diarrhoea, back pains etc, very slight breast pain which comes and goes. and i got pregnant with clomid and i have pcos.
