User avatar Hello,
Your period can be different at times without any cause for distress. I would not be alarmed but wait it out. Most women experience missed and different periods at times in their reproductive years. If you worry about pregnancy, wait a week and repeat the home test or you can get a serum (blood) test from a doctor's office or clinic.

Best wishes.
