Pregnancy Test: Over the counter pregnancy tests have become quite sensitive. You can do one 4 days before your expected period. However, if it is negative and you miss your period, you should do another one.

Yes: Sometimes it is possible to just miss a period. Pregnancy tests are most accurate one week after a missed period and done on a first morning urine. If you have done this and it is negative then just relax and wait for your next period to come.

Light periods: The main reason for light periods is change in hormone levels. Causes for what seems to be a light period can include: thyroid problems, eating disorders, excessive exercise, initial periods for a girl, use of an intrauterine device, oral contraceptives, perimenopause & implantation bleeding in early pregnancy which rarely occurs.
