Should I be worried?

I'm a 25 year old woman, who aside from minor aches and pains, is healthy. A about 2-3 weeks ago, after spending a month writing my thesis, I was struck with a migraine. I ended up vomiting from it. Migraine's are nothing new, the vomiting from them is. It's only happened a few times. Around this same time, my gums began to swell, nothing abnormal or unusual. I didn't think anything of it. Also in the time frame, I noticed about 5 (total) bruises on my legs. None of them were deep or very bad bruises. I could account for 2 or 3 of them. They have all since gone away.

About two weeks ago I noticed what may or may not have been petechiae, 5 maybe 6 spots on my collar bone. I don't know if that's what it was, it's what it looked like. Anyway, those went away in a matter of a few days and have not returned.

All my bruises have cleared up. I've had a minor sore throat, a slight cough (though my siblings had the same things), but have otherwise felt fine. I don't have a fever. No abdominal pain. I've cut myself twice over the past few weeks, and both have not bleed abnormally and have healed. I'm not fatigued. I get up, go to work, have an appetite. Haven't lost any weight.

I just noticed the symptoms all around the same, mind you (except for the petechie--if that's what it was) before, and wondered if there should be a cause for concern or if I should just watch things and see how things play out in the next few weeks?

Thanks. :)
