In brief: Need to clarify

Pregnancy is not the only reason not to have a period.
The lack of a period is amenorrhea. There can be general health reasons, psychological reasons as well. When she gets evaluated these will be the things that will need to be evaluated.

In brief: Probably not

If the friend has not had sex since her last period, she should not be pregnant.
That said, a pregnancy test is always a good idea. There are many reasons why she might miss a period, pregnancy being one of them. If she misses another with a negative pregnancy test, she should see her doctor.
