New here and confused *edit *2nd edit

Im so confused.

My last period was July 14-21. My average cycle is 24 days. According to my period app I was to ovulate July 25. I cramped that day and felt the same as I always do when I ovulate. We had sex on July 17,19,20,21, 22 and 25th.
I've cramped every day since the 25th - not typical.
I've tested on August 3rd and 7th with negative results. The 7th being the day my period was due.
Thursday morning (3 days late - again, not typical) I spotted some pink and in the afternoon brown and an hour ago (about 2:30am) thick brown and enough to change my panty liner. This is not regular for me.
I usually cramp first thing in the morning my period is due and an hour later I start my period full force and bloody red and heavy for the first three days (really really heavy).

My confusion....suppose this is implantation bleeding then when should I test again? I did have implantation bleeding with my first however I didn't realize what it was at the time but thankfully I take notes so I was able to see that I did on my first that it wasn't my period. I was 6wks preg when I tested with my first pregnancy ten days late from my expected period.

So should I just wait two more weeks or should I test again tomorrow even with this weird brown bleeding I have going on? Thanks in advance.

*edit
I guess I got my period? *shrug.
Now I'm bleeding red this morning. I guess I'll just keep an eye on it, have sex when I think I'm ovulating and wait a month until my period. Oh well.

*2nd edit
Updated with pee stick picture.
Should I be excited??? Is it possible to be wrong. Slight pink line showed up. When I tested before there was nothing.

i would wait two weeks after the implantation bleeding to make sure you get the right results and not a false negative. good luck and baby dust to you.!

Thanks! I made a small edit in my post. I don't think so this month.

I would wait 3-4 days after what you think is implantation bleeding to test.  That's about how long it takes for the hcg to be detected in your urine after implantation.

Sorry AF seems to have shown, though!  Good luck this cycle.

We hit the mark three years ago on the first try. I was kinda hoping again this time. I'm not super disappointed.
My husband was kind and said we will have fun trying again. Lol

Yes. I stared at it for about 30 seconds and watched the second line show up faintly. I then swept up some cat litter in the bathroom, trying to patiently wait two minutes. When I rechecked it darkened slightly more.

Congrats on being preg too :)
