Is it too early to decide on implant failure?

I installed 2 short 6mm implants with 4.8mm diameter. Bone was not good. I achieved primary stability of 40 Ncm. Patient returned at 2-weeks complaining of dull pain. She also had pain on palpation. Are these failed implants or should I wait a few more weeks before I make a decision? How long do you usually wait to make a definitive determination of implant failure?
