All you can do is take a pregnancy test with your first morning's urine to rule out pregnancy.
The "movement" is most likely gas as a pregnant woman usually does not feel movement until around 18+ weeks of pregnancy.  Thats assuming this is your first of course.

With subsequent children you may feel movement earlier.  Some mothers report feeling movement as early as 14/15 weeks.

This of course is all dependent on fetal growth, placental position, and movement cycles of your baby.  Some move a lot less during the day so you may not notice it at first.
