Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
Heavy bleeding with clots and cramps could be suggestive of miscarriage (due to missed period in between, your symptoms and suspected pregnancy). Do not ignore them. Visit your gynecologist at the earliest for a thorough examination and blood HCG level test and ultrasound scan to confirm if this is a miscarriage you are undergoing. A D&C procedure (dilatation and curettage) will be needed to clean uterus and make it empty if retained products are visualized during ultrasound scan.
Take care.
