Please help - I have no idea what's going on!

Bare with me, this is going to be pretty long!

So on the 17th of May I started what was meant to be my period, it was late but I've never been perfectly regular so I thought nothing of it. It was uncharacteristically light, not much heavier than spotting and it lasted 3 days, which normally it lasts 6-10 days. Then on the 23rd the weird bleeding/spotting started again, lasting a couple of days.

About a week after that I got a positive pregnancy test, which I was shocked about because I'm on the mini pill and hadn't ever missed one. I continued to test positive but the lines didn't get darker and some days they were negative, nothing made sense.

I stopped taking my pill on the 5th of June because if I was pregnant I didn't want to be adding more hormones, but I just didn't know what was for the best either. On the 7th I started bleeding and went to the doctor thinking that I was miscarrying. They couldn't make sense of anything as I tested negative for pregnancy and positive for a uti "apparently" which I had no symptoms for and had only had my urine tested for a uti the week previously as a check up when I changed doctors.

The doctor I saw on the 7th told me to come back in a couple of weeks, but I assumed I must have had a chemical pregnancy previous to the bleeding, which could be anything. As I was bleeding I didn't want to start taking the pill again until I knew what was happening and on the 8th I kept getting hot flushes so I did an opk that came back positive (just to add to the confusion) and then on the 9th the bleeding stopped. It was medium flow on the 7th but not continuous and light and again not continuous on the 8th and 9th (could it be a withdrawal bleed from not taking the pill for a couple of days? I'd only been on it two months).
So, thinking that the opk couldn't be right I didn't think anything of it and me and my SO had unprotected sex on the 8th, 9th and 10th (not the best idea given the circumstances).
I guess my question is, what's going on and could I have ovulated around the 8th/9th and if so could I get pregnant? (I was actually due to ovulate on the 2nd or the 7th according to my trackers)
On the 11th I had mild spotting, but mainly pinkish discharge.

Any help would be great.

A little more info, we're not trying for a baby as we are getting married next year and as I have health conditions we want to make sure I'm fit and healthy for the big day.

I would say it sounds like you had a chemical before, although be careful with using the cheap tests if you did, as I had a false positive with 2 one step hpts. Coming off the pill can completely mess up your cycle for a while so I wouldn't follow your app too closely for now and use another BC if you don't want to get pregnant, I would have thought the OPK was correct but I'm not an expert, but I doubt you would get pregnant while still bleeding. Unfortunately the only way to know is to wait and see and try not to worry too much as you can't do anything about it now.

I'd agree, but to confuse things more I tested positive today on a first response!
