The earliest most tests can pick up that you are pregnant is the day your period would have been due. However, sometimes it will show negative then, but two or three days later will show positive. The closer it is to your missed period, the better it is to use first morning urine. IF you are a week or more late, using urine from any time of day will be fine.
Remember that even a very feint line is a positive.
