I'm experiencing symptoms of pregnancy but have never had sex?

Not to mention that I've never been in any sort of sexual contact with a guy. I am 16 years old and I've always had an unreasonable fear of being pregnant, around since I was 10 years old I believe. I've never told anyone about this fear because it's quite embarrassing.
I'm not sure how long ago, but maybe around 6 days ago I was having discharge that appeared to be more white than it usually is. I've looked up that pregnant women experience this, but it is usually odorless, and mine had an unpleasant odor. There was no swelling, itching, or burning, and I believe it's gone away now.
I believe I am digesting things slower as well, but am unsure. My lower stomach protrudes outwards more and feels somewhat harder. I've gained around 3 pounds since I've last checked my weight, and I had a very terrible headache yesterday. I believe headaches are a sign of pregnancy as well.
My period is usually irregular, and a week before it starts i usually begin getting tender breasts and short, sharp pains that come every once in a while and only last for a few seconds, but I haven't gotten any of those symptoms yet.
My anxiety is most likely getting the best of me, so sorry if this question is kind of stupid, but there's no possible way I could be pregnant right?? I'm afraid to talk to anyone about this. Am I just looking too deep into things or is there something going on that I should go to a doctor about?

So, obviously you can not be pregnant if you have never had sex.  :>)  So, take that off your list of concerns.  I agree that your anxiety is getting the better of you.  Most women in early pregnancy have very subtle signs anyway and am not sure your idea of what it feels like being pregnant compared to your list of what is going on with you is very accurate.  Do you get a regular physical?  That's a good time to talk about this stuff unless it gets worse then book an appointment with your doctor. And watch the anxiety because it sure can mess with you if you leave it go out of control.
