Will I get pregnant if my partner pulls out before ejaculation? I'm just too scared and nervous that there might be some instances for me to get preggy.

Withdrawal is not a safe method of contraception unfortunately. 

You should definitely use a "proper" method such as condoms or go on the pill, unless you want to run the risk of getting pregnant, or even catching a sexually transmitted disease! 

As you probably know, guys get something called pre-ejaculatory fluid which is the clear substance found when a guy is aroused, but before he has ejaculated. 
Sometimes, this can be enough for you to get pregnant as sperm can be present in this liquid.

People of certain religions use withdrawal, as contraception is banned according to their beliefs... but you will find that there is also a higher birth rate for these people in general, so it really should not be used unless religion is a deciding factor for you.

There are many methods of contraception that you could try. 
Condoms are available for free from a family planning clinic, or you could ask about going on the pill, having a cap, a coil, a patch, an injection, etc...

The most important thing is that you are staying safe. It can be difficult when you're in the heat of the moment, but try to remember that the consequences of unprotected sex can be life changing!
