The delay may be due: Use of plan b. Potential side effects w emergency contraception include menstrual flow changes (spotting, bleeding, early or late period). It is recommended that you take a pregnancy test if your are more than seven days late. So i would take another pregnancy test tomorrow ; notify your physician. Take care.
