I didn't want to leave your post unanswered.

Yes, the timing could be right for implantation bleeding, 6-12 days past ovulation. I've not expereinced it so I'm not sure what it looks like, but you describe what others have described as impantation bleeding, although some say its discharge tinged with blood rather than blood, IYSWIM.

You can expect a positive pregnancy test in about a weekish (very ish!) of you are pregnant.

Alternatively it could be your period, but that would make your luteral phase (time between ovulation and your next period) quite short. The luteral phase doesn't tend to vary that much from one cycle to the next. Do you know how long it normally is? I guess if it is your period you'd know by the end of today or tomorrow morning at the very latest.

Good luck, I hope you get the result you want!
