Tests can be wrong - it's not very common but it certainly can happen. So if there's any doubt, taking a second test to check would be a good idea.
I'm a bit confused, though: from your post this morning, I got the impression that the incident you were describing (possible contact with pre-ejaculate through underwear) happened pretty recently , e.g. within the last few days.
A pregnancy test can't give you an accurate answer until at least 10-14 days since the sexual incident in question (or the first missed day of your period, whichever is sooner).
Ohhhhh....well, then, I'll take another in 10 days.For some reason it feels like I'm pregnant...grapes. If I am, I'm not scared, my mom knows what goes on between Shon and I (Shon is my bf).I had no idea it had to be 10 days!Well, I'd better go with the flow.My period is due in about five days.

FYI, if you take a pregnancy test before the date it will work effectively, even if you ARE pregnant you're very unlikely to get a positive result, because pregnancy tests measure a hormone that only appears in the body after a woman has been pregnant for a little while. A pregnant woman who took a test too early would, in fact, be likely to get a NEGATIVE result.
So -- and to be honest, I'm doubtful of this -- if you did take a test early and read that you had a positive result, chances are you read the test wrong altogether.
In other words, chances are you are not getting cravings for foods, either, as that too, is something that would not occur this early in a pregnancy.
I'd earnestly suggest. oohlala, that you take a little reality check. You'd hardly be the first girl to decide she wanted to be pregnant at a young age and got herself convinced she was, even in a secario in which there wasn't a real possibility of ppregnancy occurring such as your own. It's hardly pathological, it happens quite a lot, really. But it's also something we're not going to entertain here at ST and play a game with, if you follow me.
Pregnancy and child-rearing are pretty serious things, and we take them seriously.
