Thanks for posting your query.
It seems that your periods are overdue by 14 days. You need to test your urine for pregnancy using a sensitive urine for pregnancy test kit available over the counter at all the pharmacies.
In case the test comes positive- two lines, then you need to plan for an abortion. Although it is never advised to abort your first child, still if it is necessary then you will have to consult a gynecologist who after confirming the period of gestation by ultrasound scan will advise you proper medicines.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.

Thanks for writing again.
The mild bleeding that you had yesterday could be due to a threatened abortion, impending period or an ectopic pregnancy. A urine test and ultrasound scan will help in proper diagnosis.
Hope my answer is helpful.
