In brief: Depends

A test done too soon may be negative and not rule out pregnancy.
If you are more than 4-5 days past the expected date for your period, you did the test correctly, then a negative result is trustworthy. If you are not more than 4-5 days past the expected date for your period you may wish re do the test in 2-3 days. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
