I'm late! I need advice!

I'm 7 days late for my period now.. I took a test September 1st and it was negative. Note: I also stopped my birth control over a month ago but I've also had a period since I've stopped my bc. In August I had a period and now this month it's 6 days late according to my calendar. I don't feel any different. Should I bother testing and getting my hopes up? I need advice ... 😕
