You may have. The only way to know is to go back to the ER or schedule a doctor's appointment. There will need to be another ultrasound done to determine if, indeed, you lost your pregnancy and also to determine that if you did lose your pregnancy, the pregnancy was COMPLETELY lost (no pieces still inside you). A partial miscarriage (where the miscarriage leaves bits of tissue left inside you) can cause serious uterine infections, so this is something that MUST be checked up on, especially since you did bleed and passed clots.
For your health (and the health of your baby, should it still be alive), I suggest you get checked out ASAP.
