What is the best solution to a pregnancy scare?

Patient

Q: So me and my boyfriend had sex and the condom broke, but he said he might've got some in me but might've not. This was a few hours ago. So i really dont know if im pregnant or not. like i cannot be pregnant im only 16. So im wondering if i get plan b just in case? or would birth control work? And if i take a pregnancy test i'd have to wait about a week. And i think it would be too late for plan b and birth control right? and i really dont want my parents knowing, i think if birth control does work for my situation, then ill go with that because my mom was already going to put me on birth control because it helps with other stuff. thank you so much.
