A: They may have changed their mind which they can do.

Call them and ask them. If that does not work file for unemployment benefits after a week. If they have not responded in a week maybe they fired you? Good luck.

They dont have to give you notice or reasons for anything unless your union contract, government employer, or private employment agreement require them to do so but you may not be covered by these classes of employees. Which would make you "at will" like the majority of the U.S. workforce.
