In brief: Multiple things

Late cycles are not unusual, excluding pregnancy.
Changes in stress, birth control, certain medications, even strenuous exercise may alter cycles. It's always best to keep a menstual calender to follow the pattern. If you are concerned about pregnancy, you may retake the test after 48-72 hrs. Sometimes, cycles change due to changed in your hormones. Irregular cycles for more than 6 mos need eval.
