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. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine.

The bottom line is you should have another pregnancy test. You can request a blood test which will be definitive. Also you should begin treatment for the UTI if you have not done so already.
