Pregnancy takes more than a few days to happen, so you can't know this early. As well, to test for pregnancy, one has to wait until there is enough of the hormone built up in the body tests read for, which is usually at least a couple weeks after a risk.

Did you want to become pregnant? If you do not, and you did not use a method of contraception or are worried it failed, if it has been less then 120 hours since your risk, you can use emergency contraception to reduce your pregnancy risk.
