Is this a defective test??!! **update**

So I have been feeling very nauseous the past two days, my boobs are very tender and I have been feeling dizzy. So I decided to take a pregnancy test, I haven't missed my period yet but its due in 6 days. 

So I peed more than enough on this stupid stick but only one window worked! The second window didnt do anything..so is this considered a defective test?? Also I swear I see a very faint line vertically on the first window, or is it just me?? 


***update**

So ok I am feeling like a crazy person or something, I feel like im on punked and Ashton Kutcher is about to pop out and laugh in my face. I took a 1st response test and havent drank ANY water in 3 hours as to not dilute my urine. I even took an expensive brand (first response) and this time the whole window was blank!! Nothing at all happened, I even peed more than I did the first time! Is there something wrong with my urine?? I feel like this is a cruel cosmic joke!!

Also I have to add DH and I are TTC so I have taken MANY tests and this has NEVER happened to me before. This is just a bad day or something??

It's very hard to tell! I would say throw this one out and take another just to be safe!

Yes if there is no control line then it is determined defective.

I would take another one. That one went a little wonky on you.

There's no control line so yes, it's defective.

Yep, you need to take another. I've had a defective test with that same test. Dollar tree has them for a dollar, they work great!

Is it possible that these are pre period symptoms? I dont see any line in the second window. Seems like test didnt work because there should be a line in second window either way
