no cramping at all, just a few drops on my underwear and then only while wiping.

Spotting is really common. Something like one in five women spot.
You should be able to a vaginal ultrasound to see the heart beat.
I know it's so scary. I spotted with my daughter--and she's five!--so as much as you can, just try and relax. (I know, I know. Easier said than done.)
Let us know how your doing in the next few days?

I have had spotting for various lengths of time in each of my (now three) pregnancies. In the first, I had two or three short bouts starting about 6 or 7 weeks. In the second I had it off and on every few days between 8-15 weeks. This time I had it for about 5 days during the sixth week, and once more last week.

It is completely normal. So far I have had two healthy children and I am expecting one more in March!

If you have a lot of cramping or pain, or the blood is a lot, or very red, or has clumps in it- there may be more to worry about. But for me at least, pink and brown on the tp is normal for 1st trimester.

looks like my HCG level is extreemly low. like 5 weeks insted of 7. Although I am still hopeful we think this is a miscarriage. I am getting my levels checked on friday again..................

Don't give up yet, I've been having some spotting too since Saturday, on and off, and even though I'm supposed to be 7 weeks also, my hcg levels were more like 5.5-6 weeks. Still, the levels increased in 48 hours and they were able to see a heartbeat the second time they checked, so it could just be that your dates are off.
