Unlikely: at 8 days after a missed period, a positive pregnancy test should have shown up if she were pregnant however there are cases where it can take longer and so recheck in a week, though it would be unlikely. If you did not intend to get pregnant then consider this a lucky break and consider a form of birth control.
