In brief: Sure

Pregnancy tests check for b-hcg which is produced by the growing fetus.
The longer you are pregnant, the more chance you will have enough b-hcg to be testing positive for. If you can be patient, wait at least a week after your period does not come, and then check a test. If you can't wait, go for it, good luck to you.

In brief: You can

But it may be too early to be positive.
Use a first morning specimen as the urine is usually more concentrated and therefore more likely to show a positive result earier.
