I want to know if I'm pregnant or was I?

I'm 16 years old and I've been sexually active with my boyfriend for about a year now. I want to know if I'm pregnant or was I?
My pregnancy thoughts started when I began to feel very tired, I needed to go potty all the time, my breasts started to grow and itch but didn't hurt. I took a home pregnancy test a month after my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex (He did the "pull out" method) and the pregnancy test came out negative.
I decided to calm down a little but days before when my period was supposed to come I started to see brown fluid coming out. It lasted 3 days, and after that I started to bleed (I thought it was a normal period) but I got very big and hurtful cramps in my lower abdomen. My blood looked more red than usual but I thought it was normal until some pieces of meat started to come out, and I thought it was normal too because that has happened before but this time it was constant. They were getting even bigger, and I had to change that protective thing (towel)more than usual because there was too much blood that lasted more than a week. My question is, was I pregnant but had a miscarriage?

Editor's Comment

It is possible that you were pregnant if you had unprotected sex. The "pull out" method is not safe to use and sperm leaks out throughout sexual intercourse. Sometimes there is a lot of tissue visible when the womb sheds it's lining so that does not necessarily indicate that you miscarried. It is worth doing a repeat pregnancy test to make sure it is negative, and you can talk to someone on the helpline if you are still concerned 0300 4000 999.
