Am I likely pregnant after plan b?

Hello. My last real period was from Feb 7-10. My periods are usually 4 days if this helps. On the 13th, I may have inserted a finger with pre ejaculation on it into my vagina. I took plan B on the 15th at about 8:45 AM. On the 21 to about the 23rd or 24th I had another "period". On March 4th I noticed some EWCM. I'm not sure if this means I'm not pregnant or not. My periods had been coming a little earlier and earlier. For example I got February's period in the 7th but January's period came on the 16th. So what should I do now? If my period is reset, is it too early for me to get a pregnancy test done on my campus on Tuesday (March 8th) or should I wait until much later in the month?

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
First of all, there is no guarantee that there was any sperm on the finger that was inserted into the vagina. Sperm dies within a few minutes in open air. Also sperm needs to be in top condition to be able to swim past the cervix. If there did happen to be sperm on the finger there is little chance it would be in any condition to make you pregnant.
Also keep in mind that the vagina quickly eliminates any sperm that does not make it past the cervix. With all the odds against pregnancy, you also took emergency contraception which would further stop any possible pregnancy from happening.
A common side effect of EC is bleeding a fear days later. It can also disrupt your regular cycle. This does not mean you are pregnant.

Below I have pasted a link to a HER article in which talks more about emergency contraception.
