We don't really go by symptoms of pregnancy; they're pretty unreliable. You're missing a period though, and have had significant pregnancy risks. You can take a pregnancy test at anytime now. If it's negative and you still don't have your period in a week, take another one. If it's positive, get to your doctor so you can discuss your options.

Obviously, too, if you are NOT prepared to become a parent or be pregnant, or do not WANT to be either now, you should start using a reliable form of birth control now. If you aren't pregnant already and don't want to be, further gambling isn't wise.
For (also) obvious reasons, you'll also want to seriously consider practicing safer sex as well.
