Amoxicillin should : Not delay your period. But having strep throat might.

Get well soon!: Two days late is not too unusual even without an illness and meds. So, first get well. Only you (and your guy) know if you had unprotected sex near your ovulation time and that's essential for pregnancy. Ask your doctor for eval if recovery is slow and/or your period skips entirely. I hope you're fine soon in all ways.
