Birth control pills

Patient : This is my first time That I've been on contraception pills , the pill "yaz" I went on it to protect myself from getting pregnant. On the first day of my period I started the pack . But within around under 3 weeks I've stopped taking it because I was getting side affects . And I would know if I've stopped taking the pill I would be unprotected. When I stopped I did get spotting for about a week . My period is one week late and was just wondering if it's normal for it too be late ? And I've have been getting cramps and bloating and cravings level are higher .
