In brief: Pregnancy test

You should take a pregnancy test.
These can be purchased at the pharmacy or you can see you doctor and they can check. If it's negative you may want to recheck a a couple of weeks, especially if using an over-the-counter test as sometimes the test doesn't turn positive right away. In the meantime use condoms or abstain.
