Spotting or period after emergency contraception


Q: So maybe 3 weeks ago my boyfriend and i were going to see how far he could fit his penis inside of me (we weren't going to have sex). so he put his penis inside me without any protection but he only got the tip in because it hurt so he pulled out straight away. a couple of days later (asap) i took the morning after pill because i was worried of the chance of getting pregnant and then 2 days ago i got my our for the first time since. my period was due on the 9th and it was the 10th when i got it. a few minutes ago i noticed my period looks like its stopping so i don't know if this is just spotting or my actual period. if it is spotting is there still chance i could be pregnant?
