Irregular period, light spotting,negative pregnancy test. Pregnant or what else could be?

I am 28 years old, and for the first time in my life I noticed mid-cycle I had light spotting for one day. Now, I am 12 days late and have a negative pregnancy test. Within the last year, my cycle fluctuates greatly... 26 to 39 days. Right now , I am on day 41. Could I be pregnant, and if not, what else could cause this?

Thanks for query on HCM.
Mid cycle spotting sometime occurs during ovulation phase,no need to worry for that.
You can confirm the pregnancy by urine pregnancy test,blood hcg level and even by usg.
If pregnancy is negative than most likely it is due to hormonal disturbances.
Better start oral contraceptive pills,it will be helpful to regularize your cycle and at the same time you can also avoid pregnancy.
Go for certain investigations like cbc,urine,rbs,thyroid profile and hormonal study and consult your gynecologist for proper treatment and guidance.
