It is possible but very very unlikely. Some women will confuse early bleeding with their periods. Your period will however have a different flow pattern, smell and look differently than bleeding during early pregnancy. From the length, it is very unlikely to be anything else but your period.

Make sure you have a balanced diet, have enough iron in your diet or supplements and sleep enough. Slow down a bit and relax, take a short nap when you are tired, exercise and destress. The change of seasons can also affect our bodies in strange ways.
