Common: Being late on a period is extremely common, so there's no immediate cause for alarm. You have not given any information about yourself, so if you are sexually active the first thing you do is a home pregnancy test. If negative you can wait up to a month to see what happens: if you miss a second period (not pregnant) call a doctor for an evaluation> Good wishes.
