In brief: Take pregnancy test

If you missed a week of your birth control pills, they will no longer be protecting you from unintended pregnancy.
If your period is late this month, i recommend taking a home pregnancy test. If you frequently have trouble remembering to take your birth control pills, you also might consider talking to your doctor about using a different form of contraception.

Could be both...Take a home test and give your body time to get over the mixed signals you have given it by missing the pills.
