Brief Answer:
you may get a serum beta hcg test done.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query to HCM,
The bleeding that you received after 3 days post stoppage of susten was the withdrawal bleed and it shouldn't have occurred if there would have been a successful pregnancy as natural progesterones would have been released by placenta , hence causing missed periods.
But urine pregnancy test is actually too early to be performed. If you need to be sure of pregnancy then you should seek a serum beta hcg test which is a blood test and can be done a week prior to onset of menses. If the hcg levels are less than 3mIU then you are surely not pregnant and this was a failed cycle.
