Thanks for the query.

The result of the urine pregnancy test depends on many factors like:
-The time of sample collection
-The gestational age
-The time gap between adding the sample ans reading the result.
So the possible causes for the light line are:
-Early pregnancy
-False positive test result.
So if you just crossed your expected date of periods, better to wait for 4 to 5 days and repeat the test with early morning mid stream urine sample.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
