Thanks for the query.

I pill can alter the menstrual cycle depending on the period of menstrual cycle when you took the pill.
If you took the pill in second half of the cycle it can postpone your periods.
For more details:
So as your pregnancy test is negative, you wait for one more week.
Possibly by that time you will get the periods.
If not consult gynecologist and take tablets for withdrawal bleeding.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
