Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.
A pregnancy test takes at least 8-10 days to show up - a woman does not even get pregnant until at least 5 days after sex. Getting pregnant a day or two before a period is due is very rare as you would not be ovulating at that time. P2 is up to 95% effective so your risk seems little to none.

Take another test. If it's still positive then you must be pregnant from the month before, not from sex less than a week ago.
