I have a few symptoms like missed period, but I've had spotting. I've felt

I'm not that concerned. If I don't get it next month then I will go to the doctor.

There are a lot of reasons your period can be abnormal, such as hormonal fluctuations, stress, illness, increased exercise routing, dietary changes, and more. Some women even skip a period once a year and that's normal for them. If you are really concerned, you can ask your doctor about a blood test.

It was a week before my period. The spotting only occured once for two days. I'm not a person that gets light periods, mine last about 5-7days. The spotting is the first time it has happened to me.

False negatives are rare. You said you had a missed period, but that you had some spotting, was the spotting around the time of your period? It could be that you had a light period during that cycle. If your next period doesn't come, take another test, if it comes up negative, make a doctor's appointment.
