Preeclampsia doesn't usually occur until after week 20. It does not affect a pregnancy test in any way. I was diagnosed with PE in my 25th week. All my pregnancy tests were positive.
If you're wondering if you can get pregnant if you're at high risk for PE, yes you can. You will just be followed more closely during your pregnancy and you may have to see a perinatologist.
