You've been on your own since baby was a week old and baby is only 5 weeks old and you may already be pregnant again..... I'm not even going to tough that part.
You can still test positive on a pregnancy test for up to 6 weeks after giving birth because your hormones are all still messed up from giving birth, so you might not be pregnant. Of course, you are also more fertile after giving birth, so if you're already having sex.... you might be pregnant.

You really should have waited at least 6 weeks before having sex to allow your body to heal properly.
You have a 5 week old so you are going to feel tired because of the sleepless nights. You should go to the doctor to get it confirmed either way.
If you don't want to fall pregnant you really should be using some form of contraception though.
