It's possible. If your periods are normally regular, then either way after another week I'd go to a doctor. If you aren't pregnant then something else might be wrong.

I had a co-worker that never got a positive pregnancy test with a pee stick. She had to get a blood test each time to know for sure.

It is very easy to get a false negative. Your body may not produce the "normal" amount of hCG. (the hormone which will make you have morning sickness and used for pregnancy tests) In my first pregnancy I did not test until almost 3 months in because I had what I thought were light periods and then just one month it stopped.
Like Naomi suggested, I would wait a week at least and try again.

Yes it could be true of course. I'd wait til at least 14 days and try again. Do you have any other symptoms?
