Six days before an expected period is too early to know if you are pregnant or not. You can wait instead until you get your period. If you get your period, it seems that you are not pregnant. If you miss the period you might be pregnant and you can take a home pregnancy test to preliminarily confirm the pregnancy. If the test is negative, then it seems likely that you are not pregnant. If the test is positive then it is highly likely that you are pregnant but you should visit your gynecologist to confirm a normal pregnancy.
