Ovulation symptoms or early pregnancy?


Q: I am 24 years old and my husband and I are trying to concieve. My periods are regular and on a 26 day cycle. My last period was Dec 2nd and ended on Dec 8th. Since then we have been actively "intimate" the day after my ended cycle and on the 12th to 14th being close to ovulation. My problem being, for 2 days i have had light brown spotting, only noticeable after wiping and once after intercourse. My next expected period is not due until Dec 28th. I have been very tired, as well as having breast soreness much like I experience the days before my period, headaches, light cramping and some nausea. I feel like this would be much too early to be an implantation bleed. Could these all be symptoms of ovulation or should I make an appt with my doctor?
