Could be: If you are sexually active, you must consider pregnancy anytime you are late for a period. It is common to have spotting in early pregnancy. I would recommend that you do a home pregnancy test. If it is negative, you may be late due to stress, change in physical activity levels, weight changes, or many other things.
