At age 46, it's not unusual to miss a period, even when it has never happened before. At some point your periods have to stop, and usually they will be irregular (with misses) for a number of years before stopping completely.

The spotting you had last month is also suggestive that your hormones are not so regular as they were in the past.

It would be best to see your doctor to help to be sure that the changes are just due to hormonal changes. Then your doctor can also give you some progesterone pills that will help to prevent further spotting. If there is any question, a blood test for pregnancy can also be done. Best wishes.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
