Question about menstrual cycle post partum...

I was wondering if someone could tell me how their first cycle was after having a baby. I stopped bleeding right before 6 weeks and my baby is now almost 3 mos. old. A couple weeks ago my hubby and I had sex and the condom broke, I haven't had pregnancy symptoms but just this last Friday I got my period or I think it was my period. It started out brown and then a little red but still mostly brownish. I put a tampon in and it hurt to take it out because it was sooo light. Plus my periods usually last 7-8 days this only lasted 3. Is that normal to have a period be like that when its our first one since giving birth or is it not. I KNOW I could take a test, I'm too scared to take a test as of yet. I am not asking if I'm pregnant cuz obviously theres always that chance but I just want to know if it sounds like that could have been a period or was it too light to be a period??? Sorry so long please be nice! :)
