Light bleeding, delayed periods, negative pregnancy tests. Was that the first day of bleeding?

Hi, I m just a little confused. I m usually pretty regular with my period. but during last months cycle I bled very lightly for one day only and now i m 12 days late to my regular time of starting. I took two pregnancy tests and they both say negative? should I count that one day of bleeding as a period and start counting 28 days from there?

Thanks for the query.
According your description the possibilities are:
Menstrual irregularities like hypomenorrhea and delayed periods due to hormonal imbalance.
Pregnancy with implantation bleeding in the last month.
So as urine pregnancy test kits are less sensitive in detecting early pregnancy, you better go for blood test for pregnancy to rule out the possibility.
If comes negative you once consult gynecologist and get evaluated for menstrual irregularity.

Take care.
