Brief Answer:
Negative pregnancy

Detailed Answer:

Welcome to healthcare magic.

You are unlikely to be pregnant. Serum beta hCG is most conclusive test of pregnancy. If it is negative, then you are not pregnant for sure.

The thin line of blood what you saw was your period.

In women it is common to have periods delayed periods once in a while.

Delayed periods might be due to change in place, increased stress, examination, change in weight etc...

These situationsof delayed periods are also associated with reduced flow of blood.

Therefore dont worry about it. You are not pregnant and everything is fine.

Let me know if you have any more questions.
