Do I just have the flu or am I pregnant?

I have a long term partner and have always used the withdrawal method (stupid, I know)

For the past week I've been experiencing symptoms of the flu-
Stuffy nose
Light headaches
Sore throat
Light cough
Nausea- vomited once (vomiting is VERY unusual for me, I only have one memory of vomiting from a sickness and that was when I was in primary school. Even if alcohol is involved, vomiting is very rare)
*a day before I started feeling like this, I did come into contact with my sister for a brief moment whom was ill.

I've also been experiencing extremely sensitive nipples and noticed my areolas have enlarged.

Feeling fatigue, but troubled sleeping.

A few days ago, I did notice minimal spotting when I wiped.
I've also been experiencing a large amount of thick white discharge.

My period is not due for around two weeks yet, and is usually regular.

It sounds like you're sick. It's that time of year already for viruses and such to be going around. If your period is'nt do for two weeks you would'nt be having pregnancy symptoms just yet.
If you and your boyfriend are using the withdrawal method the chances of you eventually getting pregnant are really high.
