What is the reason for delayed periods and stabbing pain in the abdomen ?

Im 18 and i had sex only once last march 23,2011 and it was protected and he didnt came inside me. I had my period after that last april 8-13. Last april 9, i went swimming and the water was very cold and i was experiencing abdominal pain during that time like dysmenorrhea which i often experience when im having my period. I was hospitalized for 4 days last april 10 due to gastroenteritis and i was on antibiotics and dextrose that time and they did not let me eat anything. I lost 3kg which made me underweight . I also found out that i was anemic . Now may 13, i still havent got my period yet and i dont experience any pregnancy symptoms. I also noticed white discharge which i usually experience before a period. I think this is the first time my menstruation is delayed. Last night i experienced a short stabbing pain below my belly button down to my vagina and it only lasted for a few minutes. I think im stressed and im not getting that enough sleep. What must be wrong?

welcome to health care magic.
need not worry your not pregnant if at all you want to confirm get pregnancy kit and check it out at your home.
as your hemoglobin is low your menses must be delayed.i suggest you to wait few more days.
if at all you dont get your menses within 1 week go for thyroid profile test and ulrasound to rule out exact cause for your delayed menses.
consult gynaecologist near by after you get your reports.
dont be stress out which will just aggravate your condition be optimist
all the best
