So there's this guy at work that I'm getting a crush on...

I just started a new job (he started at the same time as me) and we are in the same training group where we sit opposite each other, which means I am basically looking right at him all day.
He is very shy and I'm not exactly the most outgoing person either, and he has only initiated conversation with me once (it was work-related). I have not initiated conversation with him at all, other than to say "have a good weekend" on Friday, which took me about two hours to work up the nerve to do! However, there has been a bit of peeking over monitors and I've caught him looking at me and smiling a few times and I'm sure he's noticed me looking at him too.
I'll be honest and say that I'm not the best-looking girl in the world. I could do with losing some weight and I'm not especially attractive IMO. I don't get a lot of male attention generally. This guy is very good-looking, but not in an asshole-ish knows-it sort of way. Out of my league though, so I can't quite believe he might like me, especially considering that there is a really beautiful girl in our group. Why would he be looking at me when he could look at her?
Our training ends next week and we will be split into different teams, so it's quite likely we won't be so close to each other again. But I really like him and I wish I had the confidence to say something! I'm just too afraid that I'm reading this wrong and he's not looking at me at all (or at least not looking at me THAT way). This is the first time I've liked someone in a long time, and I guess I don't want to completely give up on the idea that he just might like me a little. But how do I tell? And if he does, what do I do now??
