Plan B vs. Pregnancy

Patient

Q: I took the Plan B pill 2 weeks ago. I have been having the symptoms of early pregnancy.
Are these just side effects of the pill? or does this sound more like pregnancy and I should be tested?
My symptoms are:
Tiredness throughout the day
Nausea after eating
Backaches
Headaches
Cramping
Spotting
Slight Discharge

If these could only be side effects, how long do they last?
If it sounds more like pregnancy, how long should I wait before being tested?

Thank You

Doctor
