Hi!
If you were my patient, I would recommend a pregnancy test (this is almost always the first thing that I do).  If your test is negative, I would probably suggest observation--if your cycles are usually montly, the next month will probably be normal again.  It is possible that you just didn't ovulate this cycle.  On the other hand, if this becomes a pattern, you should probably discuss it with your doctor, and some hormone testing might be in order.
'Good luck!
