Having a chemical pregnancy

When having a chemical pregnancy do you count that as a period or so you wait to bleed again to call it an actual cycle? Started spotting light pink yesterday turned into bright red with blood clots similar to an actual period took a test this Meina still was positive take on just now negative. Safe to say I lost this baby. That’s ok starting fresh and new! However for the record I’m not sure what to chart or mark in my calendar. Doctor says wait a cycle then ttc again. Does this count as a cycle?

Thank you
