I started my period on 12/14/14, 13 days earlier then my expected date. it was lighter than normal, but lasted 6 days. I had no menstrual cramping or the usual clots. I have been feeling nauseated constantly and feeling tired and bloated. Today 12/26/2014 I had a BM and noticed my urine was like a lime greenish yellow, even when I wiped it was the same color on the toilet paper. I took a pregnancy test but it was negative. Please help.

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out.

Since you had your periods in December chances of pregnancy are less.

If you are apprehensive regarding the status of your pregnancy you can get it checked. Most home pregnancy tests that check urine beta-HCG are sensitive to 20-25 mIU/ml of HCG. The test can be positive anywhere from about 2-3 days prior to a missed menses to 4-5 days after, but usually it should be done 7-10 days past your missed period.

Otherwise you can get a serum HCG also done which is more specific than urine pregnancy test.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and regards.
