Don't worry metformin does not cause delay in periods, it is probably the hormonal imbalance due to PCOS which is the cause of delay in periods. You can wait cor a week after the missed period usually pregnancy test comes positive in that time,if not consult your doctor and get a sonography done and seek their advice for medications to get the period.
