Implantation Bleeding, early period, or something else?

I have read so much about implantation bleeding, and it all seems to say something different.  At first, I thought I was experiencing implantation bleeding.  (I didn't have this with my first two, so I wasn't sure what to expect.)  I had very light spotting, usually brown or dark pink, for 3 days.  This morning I had one episode of a bit heavier, bright red blood, and now it is back to very light brown spotting with red streaks.  This is day 4, and I don't expect my period for 7 or 8 more days.  I have not had any cramping which I usually do with menstrual bleeding.  Does this sound like implantation or is it something else?  Thanks for any advice!

Generally implantation bleeding is light spotting and lasts a few hours up to maybe 2 days. It's normally brown or very light pink, and rarely will it be heavy or red. It's possible it could be that, or it could just be vaginal bleeding. It can happen in-between cycles for little to no reason.
