See orthodontist: Do not get any advice on the internet (e.g. rubber bands, or do it yourself orthodontics). You are not late, most orthodontists see patients every 4-6 weeks. Without them your teeth will move and the entire treatment could be jeopardized. You can call your orthodontist for "emergency" appointment and she/he will do the adjustment fat your convenience. Good luck.

Space: Yes, there are numerous remedies. Hopefully you are seeing a qualified Orthodontic specialist. Return to his/her office and bring the space to your doctor's attention.
