Welcome to e health forum.

The possible symptoms that are common in pregnancy include - Missed periods, Breast tenderness, Nausea in the early morning, Vaginal discharge from pinkish white to brownish, Spotting, Fatigue and Increased urge to urinate.

Diagnosis of pregnancy cannot be done just based on the signs and symptoms within a few days of conception.

The best and easy way to confirm if you are pregnant would be to do a urine pregnancy test at home.

Home pregnancy urine tests are very sensitive and are around 97% accurate when done correctly. Such tests can be done at least 1 day after you have missed your monthly period (which otherwise where normally regular). If it is negative, a repeat test after 7 days of missing the period, would definitely be confirmatory.

If your PT is negative, and you still have abnormal symptoms or missed periods, then it could be due to other medical issues and you need to consult your doctor and seek a proper medical opinion.

I hope this helps.
