In brief: Let

Let me start by saying that ovulation prediction tests are not always accuruate, and actually need to be done at a specific time for a set amount of days in order to more accurately detect ovulation (detailed instructions can be found in the packaging).
Regardless, the fact that your are bleeding, although two weeks late can be considered your period. The question is wether or not you ovulated two weeks ago. Typically menstrual bleeding starts two weeks after ovulation if conception does not occur. Even if you did not ovulate, you could be having an anovulatory cycle which is the shedding of your uterus due hormonal imbalance (hence bleeding). If you took a pregnancy test while bleeding, and it was neg then you are likely not having a miscarriage or pregnant. To be sure you can repeat the test in a few weeks or visit your doctor sooner for a serum(blood) pregnancy test. Good luck.
