I doubt you are pregnant - but take the test to be sure. Sperm cannot penetrate clothing, but if there is genital contact or spillage of semen near the vagina, even if there is no penetration of the penis into the vagina, sperm can enter the vagina and you can become pregnant.
I STRONGLY advise that you go to your doctor and educate yourself more about your body and sexual health. If becoming pregnant is so concerning to you, make sure you use some sort of birth control BEFORE you plan to have intercourse. Use condoms to protect against STDs.
