It is impossible to answer your question without more information. You should speak to a lawyer about the details of your case before doing anything.
It is better to consult with an immigration attorney before taking any steps. How are you adjusting your status?
More information is needed in order to answer your question.
Mr. Shusterman's (former INS Trial Attorney, 1976-82) response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
If you are out of status, you may be detained depending who you will be visiting and who invited you to visit them. Instead you should consider visiting with an experienced immigration attorney to fully assess your case and to provide you with options.
If you are out of status, then yes, you may be either issued an expedited order of removal or issued a Notice to Appear in Immigration Court if appear at a CBP office and request a copy of your Form I-94. However, even if you are out of status you may still be eligible to adjust status. It is a good idea to consult with an experienced immigration attorney before you got to CBP.
