I was wondering if when i use the get-messagetrackinglog command i would also see rejected emails. Like if external user A sends an email to internal user B and got rejected for spam, could i see the email with the command?

There's multiple log entries for each message as it moves through the server, so yes, you'd see messages that were rejected before getting to the user's mailbox. Those messages would have their subject and sender address recorded, but not the body or other headers.

You will be able to see that in the RecipientStatus section of the output of that command.
