I appreciate your query.
Please do not panic.
Your pregnancy can be easily confirmed by performing a urine ( HCG ) pregnancy test, or if that still leaves you in doubt, by a HCG estimation in the blood.
If your ultrasound was performed competently, you should have a clear idea whether you are pregnant or not.
You need to post your entire ultrasound report here.
Possibility is that there is no pregnancy, or early pregnancy that is not yet seen ( though at 7 weeks, it is quite clear )
If there is pregnancy outside the uterus, ( ectopic pregnancy ), in that case also, the ultrasound should clearly tell you if that is the situation.
Ectopic pregnancy puts you at risk, definitely, and you require urgent consultation with a gynecologist.
Please put up your ultrasound report in detail for further clarification.
Take care.
