When taking a pregnancy test, do I have to wait exactly two weeks for the test to work? Could i just take it two days before?

In brief: Wasting Money

I do not know where you got the two week rule, but first and most importantly is that you must miss a period before a test is wise to perform. The morning after the first day of a missed period is the best time to test.
Testing too soon wastes money on potentially invalid results.
