Delayed periods, protected sex. Home pregnancy test shows faint positive. Pregnant?

I am 3 weeks late, my cycle is always right on within a day of it being there. I don t have any pregnancy symptoms , i took a home test at 1 week late and it was negative, took another one a couple days ago and it was negative but faint reading on the test. All the sex I have had since my last period has been protected with a condom and as far as we know no leaks. my stress level has gone down in the last 2 weeks so could i be pregnant? should i take another home test?

You should take a blood test for pregnancy - HCG test, if possible in this situation, since it is more accurate than the urine test.
This will require a visit to the doctor / laboratory though.
It is more likely that you are not pregnant, and this is just a simple hormonal fluctuation, but you need to rule out pregnancy,
