You can't really know if she's actually pregnant and not experiencing a false pregnancy until the due date. Here is a nifty tool to calculate the due date and other pregnancy milestones:

It seems unlikely she would be pregnant from two seconds of contact with the male and no penetration, but stranger things have happened.

I recommend spaying her now if you don't want puppies.

You CAN get an ultrasound anytime after four weeks from the breeding. This will definitely show if your dog is pregnant or not.
Most all vets will do ultrasounds and they are not terribly expensive.
However, a male does not need to penetrate or tie in order to impregnate her. All it takes is for sperm to be deposited near her vulva...they will swim to the eggs and are surprisingly strong swimmers!!!
And, yes, false pregnancy is a possiblity...I would definitely go for the ultrasound ASAP.
