Hello there..
I would advice u to consult a doctor and get a ultrasound scan done to confirm your pregnancy!!
You might be having either a breakthrough bleeding or u might be having an abortion!!
The Urine pregnancy tests becomes positive because of hormone HCG. Quantitative blood tests and the most sensitive urine tests usually detect hCG shortly after implantation, which can occur anywhere from 6 to 12 days after ovulation. hCG levels can remain in the system 1-2 months after an abortion, thus, resulting in a positive test.
Hope this helps!!
