Based on dates alone it seems unlikely that she would be pregnant.
Has this been the only time that she has had a broken condom, on any kind of unprotected sex? Also, condoms are not 100% reliable (I believe that depending on the study, and the condom, the reliability is 97.3% - 99.5%) so taking a pregnancy test would not be a bad idea.
The time of fertility is approximately around day 14 of the cycle. Menstruation starts the cycle, so Thursday would not have been a time where she would have been fertile.
Also, there are other things that can throw off the dates of a period, such as stress, extreme weight loss, various other issues in the body. So giving it a few days would make sense as well.

Good Luck and G-d Bless You

when can she take a pregnancy test?
Expert:  Charogat replied 8 years ago.
Most pregnancy test claim to be reliable at one week after a missed period. Some of them even claim earlier.
If she went to the doctor / emergency room (that is something I am NOT recommending) there are some tests they can do that might show a pregnancy sooner.
Also, if she took the test earlier than a week (each test says on the box what their claim of reliability is) if the results is positive then you have a pretty definitive diagnosis. If it is negative you would be better served by taking a test again at a later date.
