Spotting 6 days before period pregnancy tests say negative


Q: Hello,
After having unprotected sex for about a week or so after my last period I noticed something different in my cycle. For the past 6 days I have been experiencing spotting. Well actually it was only present right after sex, or after I urinate and wipe I would see a light pinkish brownish watery discharge, however, for the past two days I've had to wear a liner. It is still light pinkish brown and watery and no where near heavy spotting or even a light period. It looks like plain spotting except it's not red or brown. Is this implantation bleeding or just something else? It's two days before my period should start (however when i started my last period i started 3 days late so I'm not sure how that changes anything) and all of the pregnancy tests are saying negative. I don't know what to do...
