At first, you should undergo one home pregnancy test to rule out pregnancy. Other causes could be hormonal imbalance, over wt, mental stress, pelvic or vaginal infection, old endometrial tissue, using pill etc.

I suggest to consult with gynecologist and proceed one ultrasound scan to confirm diagnosis.

In the mean time, you would maintain genital hygiene properly and avoid stress.

Be well.
