Abt 1.5 wks ago, my bf and I came very close to having an intercourse. We had oral sex and there were times when his penis rubbed against my vagina (b4 he ejaculated) I'm getting cranky as I have not get my period...which should be around this time. Could I be pregnant?? Is it possible to take a pregnancy test now?

When you say he "rubbed against my vagina" you mean he penetrated you, correct? There is a chance you are pregnant from the precum.
There is also a chance your period is late simply because of tension and nerves -- worrying about getting pregnant. Try to relax, wait for your period, and for your peace of mind take a pregnancy test in a couple weeks even if your period does come.
Since you didn't use a condom, you need to make an appointment with a gynecologist to check for STDs, however. You could have caught something whether your boyfriend ejaculated or not.

There is a chance you could be pregnant! If a penis comes near a vagina and there is any precum that drips, it could happen!!

3 weeks is pushing the envelope (if I took one then, I'd always retake it a few weeks later if I got a negative result), but it is possible to get an accurate positive then with most tests.

No...he didn't penetrate me..just around the opening (is it vulva??) How much earlier can a blood test detect one's pregnancy than the usual pregnancy test?
Also, I've noticed that I have the usual discharge (the white stuff) that comes usually before I have my period. Does it still comes during pregnancy? My stomach feels weird throughout the day sometimes...or maybe it was just my imagination?

Here's how either urine or blood tests work: they detect (or don't) a hormone called HCG, which is produced during pregnancy. NO test can predict that BEFORE about 10 days after you ovulate, or one to two days after conception (not neccessarily sex) happens. So, you generally need to wait until at least three weeks into your LAST menstrual cycle before either test can be accurate.
So, let's say things went like this: Day 1: your period Day 5: You have sex or some sexual activity where pregnacy was possible. Day 10-12: Around that time is usually ovulation, but it depends on your cycle. Day 20-22: You could get a test done, blood OR urine.
If a test is negative when a pregnancy is strongly suspected, you should repeat it in a week.
Usually, you won't see a change in your cycles or any symptoms in the first month. If you do, those may be nausea, more frequent urination, or a general tiredness or lethargy.
Also, the vulva is the name for your whole genitals: clitoris, labia, vagina, etc. the vagina is the opening and canal inside.
