You can't tell for sure, I'm afraid. Implantation spotting is usually light, and often brownish in colour rather than bright red, but even that's not always true. It's just a case of waiting to do a test and see what happens. Good luck.

Can you do a test while spotting tho??envy

You could try a First Response test, they're more sensitive, but it doesn't guarantee an accurate result.

Unfortunately it can vary from person to person. I had brown spotting plus bright red bleeding in the begining but am 20 weeks pg now so it's very hard to say. A test may not be accurate yet.

My period would acc be due in 4 days so should I just wait or...?hmm

As difficult as it is to wait, I personally recommend waiting until at least the day of your period. Obviously it's up to you, but if you test too early not only is it not as accurate, but you may be disappointed if it's not the positive you're hoping for. I wish you all the best.
