Should I freak out over a lapse in auto-rehire?

Its been 15 days since the termination (without automatic renewal, as is normal) of my employment at a major university (in Canada). How worried should I be, as no one has informed me that I'm proper fired?

As some background, usually I don't check up on my employment status. Being a grad student is a weird position to begin with, so I was fine leaving the title wrangling to HR. Every year (once last year in September a year after I had been hired and again now) the termination/re-hire bit kicks in, with 13-14 days between the day of termination and the precessing of the re-hire with no skipped paychecks.
Well now a paycheck may have been skipped (it was due two days ago, might still come in tomorrow). I don't feel awfully worried about the future but I'm not convinced that this whole situation is just going to disappear.
