Can a girl get pregnant while the male is wet and did not cum inside her? My girlfriend took a after test and it came out positive. What does this mean?

In brief: Is

Is the test that your girlfriend took a pregnancy test? If so, how much time was there between when you had this sexual interaction and when the pregnancy test was done? A home urine pregnancy test does not turn positive immediately after insemination.
Did she feel confident that she understood how to interpret the pregnancy test? If a pregnancy test was done and is positive, it usually means the woman is pregnant.

In brief: Yes,

Yes, it is possible.
Even before a man ejaculates, a significant amount of sperm is present in the "pre-cum". Remember, it only takes one sperm to cause a pregnancy. This is why we recommend condom use during the entire time of penetration.

In brief: Yes,

Yes, pregnancy can happen without ejaculation.
Seminal fluid (wetness) does contain some sperm. Ejaculation boost the number of sperm significantly, but it is possible to get pregnant when a penis is placed in a vagina.
