Welcome to ehealthforum,
The spotting and absence of usual periods could indicate hormonal imbalances, endometrial changes, uterine adhesions, etc. If you have been sexually active without protection, chances of repeat pregnancy are also possible. It is difficult to comment on the cause for the symptoms and your pregnancy status without examining you and going ahead with further evaluation. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination and investigations results) would be started to help you control the spotting and regulate your periods. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms or worsening of symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
