Welcome to HCM
Delay in the periods doesn't always indicate pregnancy.
It may be due to various reasons like Stress,altered sleep pattern,vigorous activities,diet,any intake of medications so on.
So,i would suggest you to wait for one more week.If you don't get periods until then,you can do home pregnancy test and confirm it.
Hope i have answered your query.
Thank you.
