See below: Home pregnancy tests become positive at about the time you'd be 1 week late. If it's negative then, repeat in 1 week.

Time and technique: Conception occurs within day or so of the sex. It takes about 3 weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG for a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully

NO : This is most likely due to the hormonal change from plan b. I would get another pregnancy test if you do not get a regular period in a week.
