Could I be Pregnant?!/Could it be ovulation or implantation?

Question
Hello I'm Sasha, 21 years old. I'll try to keep this as short as possible.

Menstrual cycle : Irregular (ranging from 32 days to 41 days) but average of 37 days
Last period : May 1st

By going with the 37 day cycle, it means that I ovulated around the 24th of May.
However, I did not realize the usual egg-white discharge that I normally get when I ovulate.
Stupid enough, I had intercourse with my boyfriend on the 17th and 24th, using the pull-out method.

I realized egg-white discharge mixed with slight brown spotting on the 27th, along with a really short cramping pain.
I'm not sure if this was ovulation spotting/cramps OR implantation spotting/cramps.
And today, the 31st, I realized I had similar brown spotting but with less egg-white mucus.

I'm really worried. I have no other symptoms except for the fact that I am having a cold....
I would appreciate if you could help me out. Thank you

Answer
Hi Sasha, Thanks for your question. I cannot really tell you if you are pregnant or give you a diagnosis. I would recommend that you go to a pregnancy resource center and get a free test there. I'm not sure if you have a center near you, but go to http://www.heartbeatservices.org and see if there is one. Is there a problem if you are pregnant? Please email me at Carieichel@aol.com and let me know how you are doing.
