The: The flu is caused by viruses, as such antibiotics will not be effective in treating the infection. It is not typical for the flu to last in excess of 2 weeks so, if you have not seen your physician, I recommend that you do so soon to determine the nature of your illness.

Time for recheck: Most uncomplicated viral illnesses get better within 5-10 days, even if treated with an antibiotic for a bacterial infection. The fact that you're going 14 days without improvement in symptoms is concerning. You should absolutely followup with your doctor- they'll re-examine you and see if this is the normal course for your illnesses, or if there's something else going on.

Probably not: Most home pregnancy tests are accurate and reliable, but if you feel unsure about the results you should have a test done in a clinic or at the health department. If your period is not due for 3 days, wait to see if it starts. If it is one week late, try repeating a pregnancy test or having one done in at a clinic or health department. In the meantime, take Folic Acid supplements.
