If you didn't get your period while on the sugar pills, it's not necessarily a sign of pregnancy. Many women have very light or no periods when they first start taking the pill, it's a side effect.

If you are asking if it's safe to intentionally skip a period by skipping the sugar pills and moving on to the next active pill pack, the answer is yes. You can skip your period without any increased risk of pregnancy; however, you may have unscheduled spotting or bleeding.
