Brief Answer:
Could be menstrual period

Detailed Answer:

Sometimes menstrual periods are not typical. You had experienced all the premenstrual cramps and expecting the periods and this one time it had not happened as it was. The same thing with the color of the period, it varies.

However a pregnancy test is generally ordered for everyone who are sexually active and apprehensive.

Let me know if you have any more details relevant to the query.
