well i was sick for just over a week with a really bad cold and a fever and my period was late but I'm not pregnant so I guess it happens..

It's more likely that you are sick and missed your period because you are pregnant. Take a home test or go see a doctor to be sure.

When I was sick one time, my period was really light, almost spotting. I guess it's possible. If your diet has changed in any way, that might affect it too

Maybe. It happened mostly when I was pregnant and feeling sick, but I do remember a couple times where that happened.

Yes, being ill can impact your menstrual cycle.

If you're ill around the time of ovulation your body may delay or skip ovulation in order to avoid you becoming pregnant at a time when your body could not cope, thus in turn menstruation would also be delayed or skipped. There are many other reasons for this, even travel can cause disruption to your menstrual cycles, and sometimes cycles are longer without any obvious cause.

As long as it's a one off there's no reason to be concerned, but if you go over three months without a period see your doctor just to be sure that there is nothing wrong with you.
