In brief: Fibroids
I presume you mean urine pregnancy test.
The answer is absolutely no. Fibroids do not produce pregnancy hormone.

In brief: No
Uterine fibroids can cause false positive increases in certain other biomarkers, like ca-125 or he4, but they do not cause an increase in beta-hcg which is the biomarker used to detect pregnancy.
A large subserosal pregnant may cause you to look pregnant, but the pregnancy test should be able to clarify.
