In brief: Maybe nothing

Pregnancy tests can be wrong especially early so it doesn't hurt to repeat the test.
But if you're not pregnant there can be many things that cause a period to be late because there is a complex set of hormonal changes that occur to cause periods. Since it's so complex, you probably need to see your doctor to determine what's up. But if otherwise healthy don't worry until a few more weeks pass.
