How long does it take to get your period after coming off of the pill?

I was on the pill for a lil over 2 years. I came off of it on Sep. 28th and got my period like I should on the 29th. But I haven't had it since! I took SOO many HPT and they have all been negative. I have very irregular periods when I am not on the pill so I am sure that has something to do with it. But never THIS long. The only thing I can think of is that around Nov. 12th I was spotting VERY lightly for about 5-6 days(only showed when wiped). Should I consider that my period? If not, what was that all about???
