Period after stopping breastfeeding??

Hi all, my son passed away May 9th at 7 weeks old, we had been exclusively breastfeeding and I had not yet got a period. Obviously I stopped bf'ing as of the day he passed (3 weeks ago). Hubby and I were intimate on May 20th. I have not yet got a "normal" period. I had some very light spotting it was mostly brown color - no bright red. Is it my body still getting back to normal, could I possibly be pregnant? Has anyone else experienced only minimal spotting for 3 weeks after stopping breastfeeding? I just thought once I stopped bf'ing my period would start right away.
