Yes: If you think you could be pregnant, you can take an at home pregnancy tests. They are very accurate. If you still haven't gotten your period after a few more days, you could consider making an appointment with your doctor for an evaluation.

Possible: If you are sexually active and especially if you are not using a highly effective form of birth control, then you could be pregnant. It's possible when pregnant to have bleeding that can be mistaken for a period. A home pregnancy test is a good way to find out for sure.

Yes, absolutely if you are sexually active and not using birth control. You should continue to check for pregnancy for at least 2-4 weeks Use the first urine in the morning when you wake up or otherwise try with a blood test for pregnancy.

Check home PT: The easiest way to tell is to do a home pregnancy test. If negative, check again in 5-7 days. If still negative then, it is likely negative--as these hpt are quite good. If positive, congrats. Good luck.
