You can use following code to create category programmatically:

$parentId = \Magento\Catalog\Model\Category::TREE_ROOT_ID;

$parentCategory = $this->_objectManager
$category = $this->_objectManager

$cate = $category->getCollection()
            ->addAttributeToFilter('name','test') // replace "test" with your category name.

if(!isset($cate->getId())) {
        ->setName('test') //replace "test" with your category name.
