Its normal not to see a baby on a scan at 4 weeks pregnant, often the only thing they can see at 4 weeks is a thickened lining , by 5 weeks they may be able to see a gestational sac and a yolk sac and perhaps a fetal pole (although often they can't) and by six weeks they might be able to pick up the heartbeat, I know its hard not to worry but honestly it is normal not to see anything at this stage
this site shows week to week ultrasounds, but what you can see at each stage varies a bit from woman to woman as you may be a day or two more or less pregnant than you thought
Good luck for friday xx
