W/o more information, I'm guessing "35". Searching the On-line Ecyclopedia of Integer Sequences on "7,14,21,28" returns 80 results. Searching on "7,14,21,28,35" returns 62 sequences.

also what year is it. you would have to know if its a leap year. I agree this seems like particular days of the month.

the answer is 7. Beachbumbabs and axelwolf came closest so I'll let them fill in the full answer. In a later post, I'll give the full explanation for how and why the problem is derived.

Thursdays for this month all follow that sequence then the 4th would be the next Thursday of next month.

Sorry but the answer is 6.
Since we know it's a date thing, and a riddle, the CORRECT answer must be the most unlikely choice. Therefore, it's February in a leap year. The next date for that weekday is 6.
