Normally regular women occasionally skip a cycle or two. If your delay is from pregnancy a urine pregnancy test would be positive by 3 weeks after exposure. Do the test. If menses doesn't come in another month contact your doc.

Stress (emotional, school, work, etc.) can delay ovulation, which will have a corresponding delay on menstruation. Obtain a serum HCG test, which is sensitive to low levels of pregnancy hormone to be certain about pregnancy. Get an appointment with your GYN physician and ask about oral bcp's which are effective contraceptives, and will coordinate your menses.
