Abnormal period, possible pregnancy unsure

Patient : Hi, so my period came 7 days late, and only lasted 2 days and was very light. This is very abnormal for me as my period is never late, possibly a day, but generally its 28 days perfectly in time. Also it has never been this short. Usually lasts 5 days, I have been sexually active with no contraception and according to my calculations was supposed to ovulate on the 9th of last month but I think it could have occurred late this month but it's hard to know. I was just wondering if there's a chance I could be pregnant? Is it worth taking a test? My last period was the 26th of July, and the 2 day bleeding occurred on the 29th of august. I was active during my fertile window. And my cylces have always been 28 days.
