Decidual Bleeding or Lighter than normal Period?

For the last 2-3weeks, i have been experiencing on and off cramping that felt
as though i was being pulled on the left hand side. My period was due on the 8th
of May, however it came one day late and lasted for 4 days only {usually i get
it for 5 days with cramping on the right side(heavy-light-lighter-spotting)}.I
took 2 pregnancy tests on the 8th and 9th both came back negative.
On the 9th i experienced very little light red discharge and very little
spotting with no cramping. The next day i had a heavier flow with large dark
brown discharge and i had cramps for 2-3 hours. The third day my flow was
lighter than normal that also contained dark brown discharge. On the third day
there was very little blood with some discharge, and finally on the last day
there was very light pink to peach blood that only lasted for 2-3 hours in the
morning.
I did a test on the 6th day and it was a faint positive.

I am wondering has any one experienced a lighter than normal period and still
felt like they are pregnant? I have read that some woman may experience decidual
bleeding in the very early stages of pregnancy,is it possible to shed and still be pregnant?
Should I see a doctor as early as possible?

You should see a doctor as soon as possible, it is also possible that You could be experiencing an early miscarriage. It may be too early to find out through a urine test but a blood test will read accurately.
Goodluck

I took a blood test and it came out negative.....but i still feel like there is something going on, i have white discharge until today, and this has never occured before usually after my period ends i dont have discharge at all until about 7 days and its usually clear in color.....has this ever occured to anyone??...
I made an appointment with the Doctor but the earliest i found was on the 25th....very frustrating...

I am "Sorry" You are unable to find an easier answer and that the closest appointment You can make is the 25th. The only way for You to find a direct answer is unfortunately to have a blood test organised by your doctor, is it possible you are able to see another doctor before than.
Also for your post about the discharge it might be best starting a new post with that question as you posted this one awhile ago it might not get as many suggestions as the newer ones
