Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is Uzair.
I am reviewing your post and will get back to your reply momentarily.

Nausea, increased sense of smell and stomach bloating and fullness can be early signs of pregnancy. If you have missed your period you can test by home pregnancy test for confirmation.

Hope this helps.

Hello, I'm Dr Manos M.D., board certified ObGyn. Your question is are you possibly pregnant. Of course, are you at an age where it's possible and do you understand the value of a urine pregnancy test. A positive test confirms your suspicions and a negative test could be too early to tell. Symptoms from your GI tract like nausea can be seen in pregnancy but not as definitive as the pregnancy test. I hope my response to your question is helpful. The brownish spotting you notice can happen in some menstrual cycles that are not a problem as a rule.
