light period of half a day

I have been off contraception sinced December2006. In June we had unprotected sex around the 18th June (my last period before that was around 30 May). My period was then late and only came on 4th July. I did a blood test a day or two before my period came and it said it was negative but should repeat the test in 72 hours. When i got my period (not very heavy), i thought nothing of it again until now. I got period a day early this month and only noticed a small amount of blood in my underwear when i went to the loo, and have had nothing since. We have not had unprotected sex since that night and nothing for a few weeks as we have both sick at different times.

I didn't repeat the blood test, is it possible i could in fact be pregnant?

You could be pregnant. You did the first pregnancy test too early, so repeat it now.
