Possibly: It is always important to check a pregnancy test if the period is late or lighter than usual. However it is common to have some degree of variation that can be ok. However if your cycle is persistently unusual get checked.

Hormonal imbalance: This could be an imbalance of hormones. Progesterone is the time keeper for your cycle - if it is low then periods become irregular. This is not uncommon when you are younger. Go to www.A4m.Com and use directory function to find a local functional medicine doctor to help you test your hormone levels. Then you can adjust them and regulate your cycles and get on with a normal life!

Yes: Pregnancy is always a possibility. Purchase a home pregnancy test. They usually become positive about the time you'd be 1 week late. If it's negative then, repeat in 1 week.

Anovulation: You skipped a period. You have proven that it is not pregnancy. If this problem goes for another month you will want to check in with your gynecologist to see why you have stopped ovulating.
