It will probably come out negative. Unless it is really close to your period starting, then it may come out positive, if you are. The best way to get correct results is to wait until the day before, the day of, or the day after you are supposed to start your period. Or go see a doctor for a blood test.

Several home pregnancy tests advertise that they can detect the pregnancy hormone pretty accurately up to five days before your (missed) period. However, it is a good idea to follow it up with an additional home pregnancy test should you discover that you have indeed missed your period at its expected time (should you have regular cycles), just to be sure whether or not the first one was accurate.
