In brief: Try another test

Most hpts are pretty sensitive and should be positive by a missed period.
A negative hpt, assuming it was done correctly, is pretty accurate. If you are concerned it was false, you can do another one 48 hours later. This will save you a blood test. Two negative tests make it pretty clear it's negative. Symptoms may actually be the start of a cycle as well. The UTI shouldn't interfere with this.

In brief: Now

You can have it anytime now.
As soon as implantation occurs the bhcg levels start to rise. See your doctor and, just in case, start taking Folic Acid supplements.
