In brief: Usually a pregnancy

test will be accurate by this point.
Can always repeat in a week. Reasons for missed / late period include: an anovulatory cycle in which no egg is released, marked v or ^ in weight; eating disorder; Over-exercising (endurance athletics), stress, travel, significant illnesses, oral contraceptives & other meds, Illegal drug use, breast feeding, hormone imbalances and medical problems (i.e., PCOS).

In brief: Not Pregnant

Your symptoms, besides the delayed period, represent a premenstrual state or a urinary tract infection.
If you doubt the pregnancy test you should repeat it once more.
