I missed how old you are.  I mention this because the younger you are, the more likely it is for you to have irregular menses (periods).  And depending upon the speed of your flow, it might range from brown (slow) to red (fast).  Crampy periods are considered normal although you're the best judge as to pain that is out of ordinary.  Likewise, you're the best judge as to whether the headaches & nausea are typical of your menses or out of the ordinary.  

Most over-the-counter pregnancy tests are quite accurate such that they can tell you you're pregnant 4 weeks after missing your menses.  On the hand, these tests are qualitative rather than quantitative.  In other words, it's more a typical light switch which is either on or off, rather than a dimmer which can just the brightness of the light.  


If you're concerned about the possibility of being tested, get blood testing at your family physician's office.  With that said, if you could be pregnant, then you could also have a sexually transmitted infection causing discharge & crampy pain.  Regardless, go see your family physician.  Good luck! 

Am 24, and I did read about  the brown spotting could mean that you could be getting your period I still have not gotten my period. I am going for  a test this week so hopefully I find out what going on, Thank you for your response!
