Please help in so much pain but don't want to get sent home

I've been having contractions every 5 to 10 minutes for the last 18 hours. Some have been really intense and some have been bearable.

My average for the last hour is every 6 or so minutes and again, some have stopped me in my tracks and others aren't as bad.

As of yesterday they checked me and im 3cm and 70% and also had bloody show and still spotting red this morning.

Should I go in since it's been 18 hrs of contractions? Or should i wait for the 5-1-1 rule? Does it sound like early labor or false labor? 37 weeks. Hospital is 30 minutes away with good traffic.
