Not necessarily: If you miss your period by 4-5 days, do a home pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.
