I'm late on my period for about 17 days now


Q: I'm late on my period for about 17 days now. My period is irregular but then lately I've been having them monthly (regularly) for the past few months. And I missed my period this month which is odd, I took the test this morning and it turned out to be negative. However I've been feeling nausea, my boobs are tender, and I have mild headaches from here to there. Been having lots of craving for sour and spicy food, as well as mood swings. Could I possibly took the test too early or are these just false symptoms?
