Yes its too early to do a urine pregnancy test. You can repeat the test after few days. Usually UPT becomes positive after 7 days of missing period. Delayed periods can also be due to stress or hormonal disorders (PCOD, Thyroid disorder, Hyperprolactinemia etc). You can confirm pregnancy now by doing a blood test - serum beta hcg. Take care

If you were pregnant usually test becomes positive in 7-10 days after unprotected sex. Missed period can be due to stress, ovarian problems, hormonal problems. Better to get examined by a Gynaecologist for these and also get a PAP smear done.
