Brief Answer:
Can wait for few more days

Detailed Answer:

Hi,
Welcome to Ask A Doctor. Thanks for the query.
I can understand your concern.

Minor fluctuations in the menstrual cycles can be seen frequently, depending many causes ranging from psychological, change in diet, sleep, general causes like anemia, thyroid abnormalities, etc.

No need to worry for two to three days delay usually. If there is any possibility of pregnancy, please go for a urine pregnancy test once with the early morning midstream sample.
If the test gives a negative result, body pains, headache, etc. could be considered as part of premenstrual symptoms, and you may get periods soon.

Usually vitamin and mineral supplements do not affect the menstrual cycles and actually vitamin D supplements, etc. can help in regularization of menstrual cycles.

So you can wait for a few more days. Meanwhile, if the symptoms increase in severity, you can take simple analgesics like paracetamol.
As transmission of Covid is increasing nowadays, better to be cautious, and if the symptoms persist and associated symptoms like fever, body pains, etc develop better to consult your physician once and get examined.

Hope I have answered your query. Will be happy to answer further follow up queries.
Regards
