And no I haven't took a test or went to the dr's becuz I am just scared.

Without taking the test, no one can say whether it's your menopause coming or a pregnancy. If you are pregnant, you need to see the doctor as soon as possible because the risk of complications goes up with age. Not to say you can't have a perfectly fine pregnancy, but always good to see a doctor.

Make an appointment with your doc and s/he can do checks of your hormone levels and let you know what's going on.

Best of luck to you.
