     If the test were positive, BOTH of the lines would be straight and distinct. So that test is not positive. It looks like a dye run.

    If the test window got wet, that also can invalidate the test.

    I realize you're young, but there's no point in doing anything "in a panic." That'll just scare you more. Wait until you're reasonably calm, aware of procedures, and have five minutes to test and wait for results.

    Read the instructions on the pregnancy test. It will tell you how long your particular test is valid. Whatever appears after that time is due to evaporation and should just be ignored. 

    I hope you will report your rape to police - if only to reduce the chance that your attacker will do that to someone else.
