Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. A light period from time to time is normal.

Pregnant: It sounds like you are pregnant. See if your period starts, but is sounds unlikely. If you are still concerned, see your physician for a serum pregnancy test. Take your prenatal vitamins in any event.

Very unlikely.: A negative pregnancy test done properly at 5 days after your missed period is very likely to be a true negative. No need to keep repeating the test.
