In brief: Absolutely
Pregnancy symptoms are non-specific.
This means something else could be going on other than pregnancy. Fatigue, breast tenderness, "morning sickness" could all be due a variety of other causes, most of which will resolve with time. Pregnancy tests are also not perfect. If symptoms persist see your OB for a pregnancy blood test.

In brief: It Depends
It depends on if you took an at home pregnancy test or a test from your doctor. Both tests work by detecting a hormone that is only made when you are pregnant.
Home tests use urine & there may not have been enough hormone to detect at the time you took it. Blood tests can be more accurate. See your doctor about the symptoms & to get a test.
