Early period, or implantation bleeding?

Hello Superstars.
I'm not quite sure what's going on with my body.
I'm 25, nulliparous, sexually active with one male partner, and we use condoms or withdrawal in addition to my tracking my cycle with monthlyinfo.com. Having a child is not an option for my partner and I at this juncture. I'm going on my third day of mild cramps and bloody vaginal mucous, but my period isn't due until the 5th. According to my cycle calendar I ovulated around the 20th, so this cramp/mucous deal started about 9 days past ovulation, and a week before my period is due. Does this sound like it's just an early/wonky period, or possibly implantation bleeding? My cycles are usually preceded by some nipple soreness (which has not happened at all), and just one day of this bloody mucous followed by a heavy flow the next day, so if this is a period it's different than my usual. May was a pretty awful month in terms of stress, and that's messed with my cycles before, but withdrawal or condoms notwithstanding, I did have sex close to ovulation. I'm trying to keep calm about this, because it's too early to take a pregnancy test, but I'm a bit of a worrier. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.
