It probably had to do with the wallet you were using. Did you happen to send any bitcoin after you sent this transaction? If so, it if possible that your wallet allowed you to accidentally create a double spend.

and how this happen exactly? it look like a bug, and not a thing done on purpose, if this is the case, it's a bit dangerous, since it can happen with larger amount

Wow for the first time I have seen a transaction as double spend.
Anyways what will happen to the bitcoins and what about this transaction?? Will this transaction vanish and it will look like it never happened or something else.

Usually a bug, I have seen blockchain.info do something like this before.

I really don't know how did it happen  Undecided Maybe you are correct guys, I'm experiencing a bug, and just recently I encountered another problem on blockchain.info saying " Chain Head Not Found". Blockchain.info is so buggy so I decided to import my addy on electrum

I ain't gonna use blockchain.info anymore

The transaction will likely get rejected and will vanish in time while the satoshi will be returned to the sender's wallet.

You don't pay enough.

No, the double spend that was not confirmed is invalid. It is however a double spend because the coins have been used elsewhere so there will be nothing returned.
