It may delay your period, but anemia is known to result in greater blood loss during menstruation and/or delayed menstruation but that's usually an indication it will be heavier than usual and is possibly trapped by inflammation or body disregulation. I wouldn't rule out period-delay unless it's been months and really either way that means it's time to see someone.
The cold hands and feet are also possible anemia symptoms; but they're also symptoms for many other things.
A simple CBC will give you the information on if your anemic and a Metaboloc Panel will help identify the type (because it could be iron deficiency, folate deficiency, B12... ) so you need to know the type if you do have it and it's easier to have the blood draws at the same time.
