Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
This can be an early cycle which can be due to different reasons.If this is your first exposure or even an unexpected exposure; the stress can be a reason.However, there is nothing related to the chance of pregnancy as pregnancy symptoms do not appear so early.Wait for few days for it's natural subsidence but if the bleeding persists for more than 5 days or brisk enough; do not hesitate to go to your doctor for an opinion.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
