Is it normal be late on my period?

No, but: It is not technically "normal" but it is not uncommon. Some women have irregular cycles - others are like clockwork. Various physical and mental variable can alter the timing of menses -- even stress and simply being near other women with different cycles in a confined environment. Wait longer, and consider a pregnancy test if indicated.
