  • It doesn't matter how faint the line is, if it's there it's positive. You are probably very early. Occasionally women will have what's called implantation bleeding. That may be the spotting you're experiencing.

  • I work in a hospital...the urine test is no different there than what you took at home. All it does is detect the presence of HcG.

  • I would call your ob and make an appointment. It could be implantation bleeding. I have had micarriages and implantation bleeding. With the miscarriages the bleeding got worse. With the implantation bleeding it only lasted for an hour. Good luck I hope everything will be ok.

  • Is it time for your period to begin? You might want to test again and next time use a test that shows you results in words not lines. If that one comes out positive, too, call your doctor for a prenatal appointment.
