Can light bleeding mean pregnancy?

Ok, so, I started earlier than usual, about 5 days early, it was spotting, only when I wiped and then it stopped. The next day I woke up to light bleeding, and it has lasted 7 days and is still going. I don't really know what to think right now, can somebody please help me?
Note: I have a one year old daughter, the beginning of that pregnancy I also bled, but not for as long.

Here's an update, I'm starting to bloat, I haven't taken a pregnancy test yet, because I fear it may be too soon. The spotting, period, then spotting didn't happen with my first child, but I did have a period with her and found out I was pregnant at 2 months. She is now 18 months old.

This could be several things and to get a real diagnosis you need to see a doctor. This could be a hormonal glitch where the hormones have over reacted, it could be implantation bleeding and it could be a missed miscarriage where the sac has perished and the body has not miscarried. You really do need to get checked out. This is done by a scan and is painless. At nearly 6 weeks you should be able to see the heartbeat inside the yolk sac. Fingers crossed.
