Thanks for posting your query.
Ideally no drug should be taken in first trimester of pregnancy.
Fluconazole is category C drug means in animal studies it may cause teratogenic effect on fetus, but in human being it is under trial.
As you have already taken two doses now stop it & get Ultrasound scan done at 11 weeks & 20 weeks to rule out any fetal abnormality.
I hope your query ahs been answered. I will be available for your further queries.

Welcome back.
Fetal organ formation completes in early 7 weeks & you have completed 5 weeks, So it is not too early for you.
Now if there occurs any drug effect can not be stopped.
Hope for the best & get your usg scan done as previously advised.
All the best
