Please advise - pregnancy test

Hi, I stopped taking the pill about 4 months ago and my cycle has been about 26-28 days each month. I am now on day 31 and have not yet started my period although I did have some VERY LIGHT bleeding on day 29 - literally a few drops. I've taken a pregnancy test each day from day 29 and it keeps giving a negative result. Should I just wait some more and then take another test or should I go for a blood test or go to my GP? I've been under alot of stress lately, which i've heard can delay it but for how long? And it's never happened before so I don't know what to think! Please advise? Thanks!

Stress can cause you to skip a period completely, but I would suggest that you wait a week and then re-test.
