Check preg test: The easiest thing to do is head to any local pharmacy and pick up an over the counter pregnancy test. They are cheap and reliable. If you are pregnant please seek prenatal care. If you are not and not wanting to be please see your doctor to get on some effective birth control.

See below: 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.
