Too soon to test.: It's probably too soon to test. Check the directions on the pregnancy test kit and follow the directions exactly. Make sure kit has not expired. And if you have not been in a long-term mutually monogamous relationship, it is not too early to get checked for sexually transmitted diseases, so do that while you wait.
