Bloating is not a sign of pregnancy. But you can be pregnant and have bloating.
Not neccessarily
It may be. Do a pref test
Bloating is one of the signs of pregnancy, definitely do a pregnancy test since you missed your period.

It can be normal for getting ready to start a cycle. It could be an early pregnancy symptom as well.

Not necessarily, however many moms do have difficulty with constipation and gas while pregnant and this may lead to bloating.
