Pay attention to the larger 5-leaflet leaves. If the 3-leaflet leaves are at the growing tips of the vine, no worries. It's also common for creeper seedlings first true leaves to have only 3 leaflets. If you are seriously susceptible to the toxin (as I am), learn to ID the dicot leaves of both PI and VC, so you can get rid of them before they get rooted.
Here is a pix of PI dicot:
VC seedlings have heart-shaped dicots that I often confuse with wild grape.
