Implantation bleed? Period? Pregnancy?

Hi, I need some advice... I started spotting Monday on and off, I'm still spotting now, it's mostly pink, only there when I wipe. Doesn't fill a pad at all. My period is due tomorrow, so the spotting started over a week before my period was due. Thought that it may have been implantation bleeding (ttc). Bought some early detection pregnancy tests from amazon to then read the reviews and noticed lots of complaints about false positives.... I did two which immediately came up positive. Did one with water, which came up negative. Asked my partner to do one, that came up negative then I did the final one in the evening which came up negative. Bought the expensive early response tests, did one 4pm yesterday afternoon, did another one first thing this morning (a day before my period is due) both negative. Woke up, no spotting but then an hour or so later started spotting again. I've had sore boobs (nipple area) for nealry 2 weeks now, somethng I don't normally suffer with, when on my period I get back pain, I've had no period symptoms what so ever. Does any one have any advice at all? Has anyone experienced this? No idea why I've been spotting on and off for 8 days, some days there's be no spotting at all. It's very odd. I think sadly its safe to say I'm not pregnant, because surely the proper early response test would have picked it up and sadly the amazon ones must have been faulty lile some of the reviews had stated. Please, any help or guidance would be really appreciated x

The only thing you can really do is leave it for a few days, if your period still hasn’t come then do a clear blue pregnancy test.

Would you not be classing this 8 days of spotting as your period?

Personally no because it’s spotting and it’s started a week before you period would normally come.
Leave it till Friday then do another test

It's unusual to get false positives as the tests are detecting a hormone that's only present in urine when you're pregnant. Did you do the test with your first wee of the day? This is usually the most concentrated and more likely to give an accurate reading xx

I did the early response in the morning that was negative x

Yes I thought it was unusual to get a false positive, but the reviews on the amazon tests were terrible. Lots of fake positives. Very disappointing really. Just odd how some were false and some weren't.

Pregnancy test today, took ages and ages for the urine to travel up. Eventually got a negative result. Did a dip one as well, very faint negative line. No pink spotting today, just brown and again only there when I wipe. Would really like to know what's going on. Definitely safe to say I'm. Not pregnant but doesn't explain the spotting. Period due today but only the brown when wiping
