hi my baby is 6 months old and I'm ebf now with no period till now I have started him on solids a couple of nights ago i had some brownish bleeding I took a pregnancy test immediately but it came out negative the spotting remained for 2 days now I am savings clear discharge I took a pregnancy test again it was negative, I visited my doctor she said it might be return of my period as I have taken test twice
I just wanted to ask could it be implantation bleeding and I have taken test too early?

Maybe? If you have been having sex, even though you did get your period you could have ovulated and conceived. It is likely that since the baby is not ebf now and so the demand on your body is a bit less, that your period is returning. Many women get there period right away, others don't get their's until they fully weaned. For some women, exclusive breastfeeding suppresses ovulation and they don't conceive but it is not a reliable method of BC.
