if this is what happened :
>Month number 1
you slept with guy 1 around day 15 of your cycle of this month
you slept with guy 2 two times of the same cycle
you have the period at the end of the month
then consequently NO PREGNANCY HAPPENED IN THIS MONTH neither from guy 1 nor from guy 2 ,then forget about that month

>month number 2
you never slept with guy 1
you slept with guy 2
you had your period >>>>NO PREGNANCY IN THIS MONTH
then cancel this month too

>Month number 3
you never slept with guy 1
you slept with guy 2
no period
positive pregnancy test
>>>>you are Consequently pregnant of guy number 2


You need to know that every month you had a cycle , in this cycle you had ovulation where an egg is released if pregnancy happened then no period comes if no pregnancy the menstrual bleeding comes ,then another cycle begins with its new hormones and ovulation .
if you had been pregnant in month number 1 where you slept with the two guys ,then you may had the need of paternity test if you appear to be positively pregnant but that doesn't happen

Usually this test is done if you slept with more the one partner around the period of ovulation in the fertile days

Paternity testing can determine whether or not a particular man is the biological father of a child. This procedure involves collecting and examining the DNA of a small sample of bodily fluid or tissue from a child and the potential father. DNA is the unique genetic "fingerprint" that makes up a person’s genes and chromosomes. When a baby is conceived, each parent passes on half of his/her DNA to the baby, whose genetic code (DNA) is a shared mix of only its mother’s and father’s DNA. By collecting and examining a small sample of DNA from the baby and the potential father, a paternity test can confirm or disprove that the potential father is indeed the biological father of the baby.

DNA testing is generally considered to be the most accurate testing method available. DNA paternity testing can indicate that a man is highly likely to be the father with about 99.9% accuracy or that he is excluded as being the father with 100% accuracy.

It can also be confirmed before the baby is born ,this test involves testing a small sample of tissue from the placenta. Another test, called amniocentesis, is usually performed between 16 and 22 weeks of pregnancy. This test involves passing a needle through the mother’s abdomen into the womb to collect a small sample of amniotic fluid (the “water” around the baby), which also contains cells from the baby

so If the case like i presented first you don't need a preternity test and guy 2 is the father ,but if i get your story wrong then you can rely on the information given in the answer and estimate it or ask in more clear way
