Ive been sick but had a short period this month not sure if i could be pregnant?

Hello I'm 20 years old and have had some previous issues with ovarian cysts. My Husband and I have been trying to conceive for about a year now mainly because neither of us know if I will be able to keep my ovaries much longer and we both want children.
  I have been sick on and off for the past couple of weeks. As in a common cold and now the Flu. My period was due the 5th of February but I started bleeding on the 26th of January. I thought o yet again another period. It wasn't a normal period though. I started cramping about a week or so before which isn't usual, and the bleeding started the 26th and wasn't quite as heavy as usual but it also wasn't spotting. The heavier part of the bleeding only lasted for about 12 hours and then reduced to spotting until it stopped altogether. The entire thing only lasted about a day and a half. I've read online that it could be implantation bleeding but I have taken many home pregnancy tests and all have come up negative. Is it possible that its just too early to test.. Or could this be something else?
