Do I go to a doctor or an obgyn?

See a doctor first, not the gynecologist
doctor. You need to find out WHY you haven’t gotten your period. Whether you're underweight? stressed?, have an inside problem, etc. go to the doctor and they will ask questions and hopefully figure it out.

Go to your regular doctor first. If he can't diagnose and treat the reason why you haven't had a period since the end of December, he'll refer you to an OB/GYN who can. If you try to make an appointment with an OB/GYN without a referral, it could take weeks to make an appointment to get in to see one.

you will likely need a referral from your dr

Regular doctor, especially if there's been no sex involved. Something medically is causing it like your diet, or exercise, or medications, etc. No sense involving specialist at this point.

Your family doctor can do the initial investigation, and refer you to an OBGYN if you need more advanced help.

ALWAYS see a family doctor first. They are equipped to handle minor problems like this without bothering a specialist

as a general rule, we doctors do not sound the alarms for 3 consecutive abnormal cycles (3 months).. it is normal for a woman to skip a period or two, as it can be suppressed by emotional stress, physical stress or both.. like training for the Olympics, a recent loss of a loved family member, and the stress of exams and deadlines..
it would be helpful to bring last year's calendar, and mark the days and months that you had a period -- as far as you can remember..
however, if you have other symptoms or other complaints: such as symptoms of a pregnancy (mainly the morning sickness: feeling sick and nauseated in the morning that improves as the day progresses).. and such as chest tightness, trouble in breathing, fainting spells and lethargy (excessive and unexplained tiredness and exhaustion), then you should see a doctor ASAP..
if you have mild symptoms, like tiredness and exhaustion and skipping periods for more than 3 cycles, i would advise you to see a doctor at a local clinic (a general practitioner GP or family doctor) who will investigate for common problems that may not be O&G (OBGYN) related; such as malnutrition, a mental health eating disorder (such as Anorexia Nervosa), and both Hyper- and Hypothyroidism.. he/she may refer you to Gynaecologist or an Obstetrician (OBGYN doctor) when and if needed..
you can seek an OBGYN doctor directly, but most of Amenorrhea cases are not OBGYN-related, and you may referred to a regular doctor at a local clinic.. Amenorrhea is when you miss 3 consecutive menstrual cycles without periods, but it is also given to girls who haven't begun menstruation by the age of 15 years old..
you should go to the emergency room, if you had too many fainting spells, have difficulty in breathing and chest pains, or if you are too sick to care for yourself..
and all the best..

I'd go directly to the OB-GYN. The many reasons your period isn't coming are all in their area of specialty, except for anorexia.
