This is Dr. David
how old are you?
often times with increased stress, increased anxiety, increased physical activity, more exercise, you can miss a period or have a very short or abbreviated period.
mild cramping can be due to ovarian cyst or uterine contractions
I'm glad you are going to see your GP doctor next Wednesday. you should get a gyn exam.
your doctor should check you for infection and do blood tests for pregnancy if you have been sexually active without pregnancy protection. sometimes blood tests can be more accurate than urine pregnancy testing.
if you have cramps, you can ask for a pelvic ultrasound scan to check for ovarian cysts as well.
most likely you will get your next period at the scheduled time

it depends on the tests and who draws them
blood tests for pregnancy usually are ready in a few days.
ultrasound exams of the pelvis results are usaully ready in a few days time, but the doctors have to transcribe the reports and have them typed up so paperwork can slow them down.
in the UK, the testing results tends to take longer to get back to the patient than in the USA.
