Take the test: If you want to know if you are pregnant, take a test. In today's world you do not need to wonder if you are pregnant or not based on symptoms. Pregnancy tests are available at any pharmacy and in minutes you will have your answer. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period.

Unanswerable: Unfortunately there is absolutely no information in your question to respond to. To give you an accurate or valid answer one would need to know your last period, what your cycles are like; when you had sexual intercourse during your cycle and such information. But, in general if one's period is late and there is a chance of pregnancy then it is time to test.
