In brief: Not likely
While it is hard to be certain, if you had bleeding that seemed like your period, you are not likely to be pregnant, even if you were a bit late.
There is a small chance, though, that you were pregnant and then miscarried, or had an unusual bleed during pregnancy - sometimes this happens when the embryo plants into the uterus. If in doubt, check a pregnancy test.
