is it safe to masturbate at 6weeks pregnant ?

Generally no problem: Sex (or masturbation) is safe if done alone or with one's monogamous spouse, and if there are no sexually transmitted diseases nor any pregnancy complications (such as premature labor). As long as it is comfortable enough for both people, one can have sex throughout her pregnancy. Orgasms are fine as long as the pregnancy is going well. Sex is also important psychologically for both people.
