    To put it simply:  If you had a miscarriage and you were further along in pregnancy than 1-1/2 months, you would probably experience bleeding and pain, and you "might" be able to see the tiny fetus after you passed it and recognize it for what it was.

    A blood clot would look like a blood clot and wouldn't cause you any pain or bleeding.

    No way to know for sure without a positive pregnancy test.

    If a pregnancy test is positive - you had a miscarriage.

    If a pregnancy test is negative - you had a blood clot.

    You can take a pregnancy test right after. If it's positive, you were pregnant.

    Take a pregnancy test (the inexpensive ones are as good as the expensive ones).

    If you were pregnant enough to have a miscarriage, a test will turn positive.

    Call and get into see the doctor.  They can do a blood test.  Or you can wait to see if you have a regular period around your normal time.

    There's no way to know if you didn't have your pregnancy confirmed prior to the period/bleeding.  About  10% of all conceptions do result in an early loss in that first month after conception.  

    Obviously, if you had unprotected sex during your ovulation window, your chances of conceiving are higher than if you did not.  That noted, there's no guarantee that having sex in your fertility window will result in a pregnancy.

      It's way higher than 10%. If you count implantation failures, at least 50% of all conceptions fail to result in a live birth. Some estimates say 70%, or even more.

    Use a vagoscope.

    How early?  If it's very early there's no way to know.  The egg could be fertilized, never implants and dies in which case you just get a regular period.  Or the egg implants and dies weeks later for some reason (if the fetus is non-viable, the body is pretty ruthless in getting rid of it).  The longer it has implanted and has been growing, the more 'effects' you are going to see when it dies and the lining of the uterus is flushed away to rebuild for the next ovulation cycle.
