Basically, can a genital wart show up on penis one week after a sexual encounter? is that possible? i have no major health or immunity issues.

Why not?: I think it is entirely possible since the wart is from a virus. See your doctor to get treated and no sexual contact until this has been cleared up or until you are certain that this is not a genital wart. Else you are risking your potential partners' health.
