Yes: Any fluid released through the penis can contain sperm and therefore cause pregnancy.
Dr. Roscoe Nelson

Yes: Yes.
Dr. Gerard Honore

Pre-ejaculate: In theory 'yes;' conventional wisdom has always said this, although more scientifically no study has ever proven it (at least as of 2011.) common sense says if preventing pregnancy is your goal, all unprotected exposure must be treated as a risk.

Of course: Anyone having intercourse without birth control or condoms is at risk of getting pregnant. If sperm is deposited in the vagina then pregnancy is possible. There are around 4 million sperm in preejaculatory fluid and it only takes one.

Pregnancy: I can't give you an exact percentage. It is low, but not impossible. A pregnancy test may be useful.
