From what you've written that doesn't appear to be a subdomain that you're after. A subdomain would be something like blog.test.com or squeeze.test.com etc.

To add a new squeeze page with that URL simply add a new page - (you will need to make sure your permalinks are set to only show the postname - go to Settings > Permalinks) and edit the URL for the new page.

Hope that helps.

If you just ad it as a new page then look at the url once you publish you should have your answer.
