The chances of you being pregnant is very low.

Women ovulate about 14-16 days after the period and the egg can be fertilized for up to 48-72 hours. After that the chances of a pregnancy decreases. At 2 days before the period , the risks of a pregnancy is practically nil.

the delay in your period is probably due to stress. A pregnancy test will probably come up negative.
