I was late 4 days late for my period in the fifth day I stared spotting and have been spotting for 11 days now could I be pregnant

I'd go to a doctor, just to make sure. You could be pregnant, or it could be something more serious. Take another test, too, because like your friend said, if your hormones are too low the test won't read, and you may need to take a couple. But really, if you go to the doctor it will save you the trouble and give you more peace of mind.

you might want to take another one. Not all test work the first time. I had taken three and they all came up negative. When I went to the doctor they told me that i was pregnant. I would just say make an appointment just incase. You never know it might be something else you shouldn't chance it. Good luck :)

I wish i could give you an answer but I had a similar problem myself. I don't ever know when i am going to start my period and spot for days after i think it is over. I know that im not pregnant b/c i had essure done. I would talk to a doctor about it and maybe they have a more accurate test that can tell u if you are pregnant.

When I got pregnant the second time, I also had this. I don't want to scare you, but I ended up having a chemical pregnancy. At 3w3d I got brown discharge, at 3w4d I started getting pink blood only when I wiped, and off-and-on cramps. This lasted for 7 days, until I miscarried and started my period.
I took 2 FRER tests before the blood tests, one at 3w4d and 3w5d, which was a little lighter than the first. I had 2 blood tests done. The 1st one was at 4weeks, the hcg was down to 5. At 4w3d, the day after the bleeding started, it was less than 1 :(. But yeah I don't want to bring you down, just want to let you know what happened to me..I convinced myself that it was going to be ok because I wasn't technically "bleeding," but of course it didn't turn out that way. I would take a FRER, they are accurate enough to let you know if you're having a chemical preg., so at least you'll know what's going on. Good luck ! :)
