Can't be a mommy yet.

I had sex for the first time, and less than a week later I had period-like cramps and some blood spotting in my underwear. Was I, or am I now, pregnant? We took every possible precaution...

Did the deed Saturday night. Three times. Bye bye virginity. It didn't hurt and I didn't notice any post-coital bleeding, which was a relief. Did it again three more times Monday night. The weird, between-period bleeding and cramping happened mid-afternoon on Wednesday. Nothing more that I have noticed since. I feel a little bloated, though that could be me being paranoid. I'm in the middle of week 2 of my cycle.
I'm on the pill, he used condoms. The first time we did it I was somewhat late taking my pill (Necon 1/35, so a pretty high dose) that day, but, as I said, a condom was used right from the first point that sperm could have been introduced into the equation.
I have looked at a lot of the pregnancy scare/miscarriage posts from the past, but none can quite reassure me enough.
Most importantly, I need to know if I should be doing pregnancy tests/going to the health center/worrying about scheduling things at Planned Parenthood. I'm in college, in the throes of end-of-semester nonsense, BUT I absolutely cannot go home to my parents worrying about this.
I know you're not my doctor, but this seems like it should be a fairly common experience. If I really need to be going in to see a professional (and that's not just your kneejerk reaction), I can do that.
