Thanks for posting your query.

Normally in any women of child bearing age, missing a period is a sign of pregnancy. There are chances of pregnancy.

At times when the there is possibility of conceiving in late part of cycle, the urine pregnancy test may not be strongly positive.

I suggest you to repeat the test with different kit. You may also go ahead and get a blood HCG test to diagnose pregnancy. A gynecologist can guide you through blood HCG test.

I hope this helps, I will be glad to answer any follow up queries that you have.
