Yes it is too early to have any symptoms as yet.

However you may indeed have pubic lice - these are visible to the naked eye.

"Pubic lice are diagnosed easily because they are visible to the naked eye. They are pinhead size, oval in shape, and grayish, but appear reddish-brown when full of blood from their host."

No it is not.

I suspect that you are feeling a little anxious about this and your mind is "playing tricks on you."
