I had a late period two weeks ago and it was not a normal one it lasted around 4 days only the first was bright red the other was light brown discharge. It has been two weeks or more since then and I haven't ovulate yet I did have some egg white mucus after what I think was my period. Could I still be pregnant I have been sick like a cold a lot of nausea headaches and light cramping also I have slept so much I can probably sleep all day if I could

Welcome to ehealthforum.
The presence of egg white mucus after 10-12 days of your periods indicates that you are about to ovulate (have egg release from ovary). Few women experience flu like symptoms, abdominal cramps, headaches around the time of ovulation. Monitor your BBT chart to see when you have ovulation. If the last period has been abnormal, lighter/shorter, then the current symptoms might also indicate pregnancy possibility. Wait and watch for your next periods/withdrawal bleeding. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately).
Take care.
