I had unprotected sex, should I do an STI test? Watch
You shouldn't have unprotected sex. Carry a condom and use a condom, in addition to whatever contraception your partner is on.
Once your in a longterm relationship, secure relationship and you've both been tested then sure but until then use a condom to protect yourself from unwanted STIs or fatherhood.
With no symptoms I'd wait 5 weeks then go for a STI test.
Official NHS advice.
It is very unlikely you have caught anything, but best to speak to a professional, especially about infections such as HIV (4 weeks for symptoms is *******s, some go years with no obvious symptoms). You clearly need some advice on staying safe, so go and get it.
