Funny pregnancy test

I say funny as in it's acting funny. Waiting to see if your pregnant or not is never funny. My fiance bought me an equate pregnancy test yesterday and I took it this morning. It works with either plus or minus sign to tell you if your pregnant. I took the test and the control line was there. I waited 3 minutes, and the barely faintest of negative lines showed. Unless you held it to the light you couldn't see it. I waited for another minute or so and the same. So what does that mean? Was it defective? Am I not showing enough HCG or is it pale because my HCG levels are still rising? I read somewhere certain test have certain sensitivty levels and equate may have a low sensitvity but I couldn't find it on the box to tell. Can anyone help?

I wouldn't trust it honestly. I would get a new one and try again tomorrow morning.

Thanks for replying. I got a better test, 2 of them this time. I'm going to test again in the morning.

Look at the expiration date on the box.  Might just be an old test.
