Menstrual cycles: Can be affected by many factors: physical stress, emotional stress, gaining weight, losing weight, strenuous physical activity, hormonal imbalance. Wait a few days; if still no period, consult gyn. May want to do home pregnancy test then just to eliminate that as a remote possibility.

Probably nothing: Some variation in cycles is normal and expected. If there is no pregnancy and you have no period for 3 months, then further checking is indicated.
