yes, you should.
I have a similar situation. I thought I started my period (it looked normal) my periods usually last 7 days, but it only lasted a day n a 1/2. and felt bloated for about a week after but I havent really been showing prego symptoms,.... I think.
My boobs are find. I have been urinating more often and I just started having very slight cramps. very mild. but I did feel a little sick the other morning, but I'm not throwing up. I have gained some weight and may have been eating more then usual. I am just not going to worry about till I start having more obvious symptoms: boob hurting, throwing up, missed next period, tired ness. etc.
I started on 11-28 lasted 11-29. then the next day it was light brown and the rest of the week, including now, I see nothing, just a little discharge.
When did you start having symptoms?

No I didnt take a test, yet. I have not told my husband and wanted to wait till more signs came first. my boobs were itchy today and I have mild cramps now. I just want to wait because I dont want to freak my husband out. He is under alot of stress now and I dont wasnt to put more on him. He got laid off and hasnt been able to find a job and my job may be ending soon and we have no place for a baby. If I tell him whats going on he will have anxioty attacks or just plain go nuts. we do want children but right now we dont even have a place for its head and no money get an appartment or home. we live in a 32 foot camper(bought it for work, he worked in a plant, and now I do)

I was that way at first, I couldnt get it out my mind either. But I just thought, oh well, if I am then I am. If I am not then I am not. It is still there lingering in my mind but I try to focus on other stuff, worrying about it will stress you out too much. just enjoy each day and let all the worries and stress not get to you, keep your head held high and stay positive.

How long ago did you get you "period"?

I am not having any symptoms like you are. I was eating alot but I think it was because I thought I was prego and go my brain to thing it and it reacted to it. but you know it could be in your head, b/c I thought I was and I was checking everything on my body that would be able to tell me and so far I dont see anything. BUT when i thought i was I would wake up and have that thought of prego and wonder if I was going to have morning sickness and after I thought it then I felf nausia, but I never thru up. I think I was just stressing because everytime my husband ans I have sex, prego is the first thing on my mind after. so everyday after its in my head "am I ?" "could I be?". it just makes you go crazy. but now I have come to realize that after sex I would have to wait 5-8 weeks before I see symptoms. and that the symptoms that you are having could be from all the stress you are putting on yourself. have you done your research on prego? As soon as I thought I was, I didnt tell anyone, I got online and started to get as much info as possible.

I wish I knew why our periods were the way they were......I wasnt stressing so i know thats not why. I am a calm person and each day I look to Jesus to guide me in the direction God wants me to go. To help me thru the opsticles of the world day by day. When he knows I am ready then he will provide me with the gift of a child but he knows I am not ready. maybe he is testing you and your reaction to being prego. Are you married or not? it maybe be warning from him. You may not notice but he does test you in many ways. with boyfriends, friends, family, school, he just wants you to do the right thing, and he wants to see you happy. Just pray and ask God and he will show you. you will see all the signs.

here is some info I got from an online OBGYN

Unfortunately, pregnancy-like symptoms can be caused by literally dozens of things besides pregnancy. Some women who are pregnant can experience bleeding that mimics a period, but really isn't one--they're different than usual.

The only way to know for sure is to take a Home Pregnancy Test and find out! If it's negative, you should probably get checked out for the cause of those symptoms. I hope it turns out the way you'd like it to.

I found out this

you can also see if your prego if your cervix is high and soft.

you have to stick your finger in your vigina (vagina) and feel it. but you cannot just feel it once, you have to keep record of it because when you ovulate it gets high and soft.
