Birth control missed period

I'm currently taking sprintec for birth control. I was supposed to start on 07/11/16 and I am now 5 days late. A week before my period I experienced mIld spotting for about a 5-7 days. (Color varied from light pink, to red, to brown.) I've experienced spotting before from missing 2 pills and having to double up, but always spotted and then got my regular period during the placebo week. I've never been 5 days late so I am concerned I am pregnant. I've taken 5 HPT and they're all negative. My gyno said to wait 2 weeks and if my period doesn't show up then I should go in to get a blood test. Could I possibly be pregnant? I don't want to rule it out unless I'm 100% positive I'm not.

I still haven't started... Tomorrow I will be a week late. This is very unusual for me. I've been super worn out and smells bother me, Nausea, headache, Iplan on taking another HPT this week and if I don't start by this week, I'm going to the gyno next week. I'm not sure if that spotting I had a week before my period was breakthrough bleeding, implantation bleeding, or my period just came early (which I don't think is the case). im so confused lol

Don't worry just wait for 2 week and check again. If you got pregnant there are much more option to terminate unwanted pregnancy.
