See below: Your profile says you are a 16 year old male. If you are a woman, and you do not get your period in 5 days, do a pregnancy test. If the result is negative, repeat the test in 3-4 days. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive.
Practice safe sex.
Get HPV vaccine.
