When should I be worried enough to take a home pregnancy test?

I use the Glow app (tracks your period, ovulation window, sexual health, all that fun stuff), and I use it religiously. I put it when I had sex, the forms of Birth control uses, how I'm feeling, if I exercised, EVERYTHING. It know my life. in addition to this awesome app, my period is NEVER late. It is like a fine tuned machine of punctuality, which is why my sexual partner and I are currently trying to not stress out too much now that my period is 4 days late. Reviewing the app log of when we have had sexual relations, I recently realized that we did have sex at the peak of my ovulation cycle and at that time we used both condoms and withdrawl methods. Although I am very certain that he did no *** in me, there was one moment we weren't sure if he did a little or not because for the first time I came. Unironically I've been waiting for my period to start because this is the period that I was getting the Skyla (IUD) put in.
I've been experiencing cramping and very light brownish spotting (like once a day light). Also- I have been throwing up and feeling nauseous whenever I eat, while sleeping for very long periods of time (like 12 hour cycles of sleep) in addition to being 4 days late.

We're both in our mid twenties, I'm trying to get out of a financially unstable situation, he's just bought his first apartment building, we both come from homeless backgrounds so stability is literally our life goals and focus and quite frankly I know he doesn't want children, I cannot afford them, so I'd hoping this is just a scare or I will be looking in termination information. When should I look into taking a home pregnancy test? Also- could this be related to acus cells (I have an appointment to go in because they found these on my clevis and want further testing)??
