Brief Answer:
Urine pregnancy test advised

Detailed Answer:
Hello Mam, thanks for trusting health care magic.
In my opinion you should do a pregnancy test in case you have even a slight doubt of pregnancy as in peri menopausal stage if is common to mistake missed periods with menopause.
If pregnancy test is negative then nothing to worry as breast tenderness and abdominal bloating are common in first few years of menopause.
All the best.
