Thanks for posting your query.

The light spotting that you had few days after having sex is not likely to be due to the periods. Such mild spotting can occur due to mild hormonal changes. I consider it very likely in view of your age.

As your periods are regular, the current 2 weeks and above overdue might be due to pregnancy. I instruct you to get your urine tested via home pregnancy test kit available over the counter at all the pharmacies. If the test comes negative then hormonal imbalance or perimenopausal amenorrhea is the most likely cause of the delay of your periods.

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.
