Well: You are young. Up to present were your periods always regular or this "irregularity" is a first one? If yes, and if you had unprotected sex, wait a few more day and if still "nothing" go get a home test and check for pregnancy. If you had no sex at all and if you have no other symptoms I would wait. Girls at your age could still have irregular periods. See what happens in the next month's cycle.

Periods: Since you are young it sometimes takes a while for your brain to properly talk to your ovaries and your ovaries to properly talk to your uterus. If you are not pregnant, then these periods of irregular bleeding or spotting may occur until your whole axis matures. There are some that are already mature and still have these problems. Progesterone or birth control pills can help regulate these.

I had cramps on the day I was supposed to start my period but I didn't have any bleeding. It was three days late then I had light bleeding and no cram?

Pregnancy?: You first should make sure you are not pregnant. If you are not pregnant, its possible that you had a month without ovulation. This happens occasionally. If you have pain or persistent spotting, you should see your Gyn even if a home pregnancy test is negative because this could indicate an ectopic pregnancy or miscarriage. Best wishes!

Early period: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated.
