Am I pregnant?

Hi, I'm a 17 year old girl and I'm scared out of my mind that I could be pregnant. My boyfriend and I have not actually had sex, but we've fooled around naked including rubbing our genitals together and naked grinding. He's never ejaculated in or near my vaginal opening, but pre cm can contain sperm and this is what worries me. I'm on birth control, and from what I can tell, I've been taking it perfectly since I started in the beginning of May. June was the month that me and my boyfriend did all of these activities, and I still got my scheduled withdrawal bleeding in the month of June 28 days after my last withdrawal bleed in May. Well, I haven't done anything sexual since my last period. My boyfriend has been gone. I thought that once I got my period it was going to be alright, but my period was kind of weird, it lasted a good 6 days, but towards the 6th day, it would completely stop for hours and then start up lightly. I took a pregnancy test one week after my period, and it came out negative. So I thought, okay good. But, I'm on my last 7 active pills and my withdrawal should come on Wednesday. The skin on my nipples have been kind of peeling like little flakes, and I'm peeing a lot more than usual. I'm also convincing myself that my areolas have grown but I don't really think so. Recently, my boobs have become more veiny and tender but I'm sure that's just because of my hormonal contraception. I can't be pregnant, my mom said she wouldn't let me get an abortion and I have so much I want to do with my life! I've also never even had sex, so how embarrassing is that? :( please help.

Thank you Susan. I'm very paranoid and anxious about pregnancy especially at my age. If my period wasn't to come this month, should I assume pregnancy?
