You can acquire herpes through receptive oral sex. It's pretty hard to acquire an std using a condom. There's no way to be tested for herpes this soon, if you have no symptoms. There's really nothing to check and nothing you can do. Sorry.

what are the early signs of herpes ? and is it the only thing i should be worried about ? it was a brief oral encounter for like 10 secs or so. the actual intercourse was with a condom. also how often does it happen with oral ? i always assumed its safe. or it rarely happens.

There aren't any early stages of herpes. The first sign is burning and tingling followed by blisters about a day or two later. There's not much else to worry about with oral sex. It's rare but can occur.
