When did you first start menstrating? typically the first year or so periods can be irregular, essentially your body is just establishing it's routine.
Alternatively if it has been longer than that and you are not sexually active, then issues such as stress, rapid weight loss or malnutrition can cause you to 'miss' periods.

do any of these seem to ring a bell?

Ultimately if you have further concerns you should discuss them with your GP.
