Period Nine Days Late

Hello! I’ve been tracking my period for the past six months on Flo and saw on there that my period is late. I never really consistently tracked my cycle before, but since getting married I’ve tracked it just to be safe. According to the app, my average cycle for the past six months has been 36 days. My last period was on December 3rd-5th and it was light/med, which is unusual for me since my periods usually last around five days and go from light-med/heavy-back to light. I took a test the first day my period was late and got a very very faint positive. I took another one a couple days later and it was negative. I had a scare back in October so I don’t really trust the faint positive. Should I take my last test on hand now, or wait until the end of the month (about another week) to take it to build up some potential HCG? The waiting is killing me and having scares in the past makes me not trust myself. I’ve been pretty tired lately, my back has been sore the past couple of days, I have some hormonal acne on my jawline, I’ve had cravings, have been pretty emotional, and I was nauseous for a couple days in the morning last week. I spotted a day or two before my expected period for about a day and a half very lightly, but I also had sex with my husband the night before so although it was weird, I didn’t think too much of it. I’m also going through a tough time with my husband right now and he’s not home a lot, so I haven’t told him because I don’t want to worry him and because of our scares. If I take another test and it does clearly look positive though, I do plan on making a doctor’s appointment to confirm it and tell him. Do you think I am pregnant, or is the stress I’m going through right now delaying my period when I’ve been pretty regular for the past six months? Should I take a test tomorrow, or wait another week?
