Home pregnancy tests are not very specific for Pregnancy though they are quite sensitive.

Please get a serum beta HCG test done to look for the positive titres. An ultrasound scan of the pelvis will be accurate to diagnose pregnancy, if any.

Depending on the test result, you could take further decisions.

Hope this helps.

delayed periods could be because of many causes which can affect hypothalamo-pituitary-ovarian axis leading to hormonal imbalance,
as there is around 3% failure rate for condoms better to exclude pregnancy, you can go for blood for pregnancy to rule out the possibility, if that comes negative to consult gynecologist and undergo physical examination, ultrasound to find out the cause for your delayed periods.
take care.
