Bleeding, pregnancy tests show faded horizontal lines. Indicating pregnancy?

I had implantation bleeding the last time i was preg. The result did not show up for 5 weeks for a positive. I believe I may have had implantation bleeding again this time. I should be about 4 weeks if so. Preg tests come back neg. However, when I have taken the test there should be two different lines, one is the control and it should read vertical which it did to say i took the test correctly, however the pregnancy window showed two horizontal lines that eventually faded. If i was pregnant then both lines should have been vertical. do the faded horizontal lines indicate the pregnancy hormone faintly? thank you for your help

Thanks for the query.

Sometimes urine pregnancy test kits may not detect early pregnancy and can give false results.
So better repeat the test after one week or go for blood test for pregnancy which will give more accurate results.
Some women may have implantation bleeding but spotting during expected date of periods can also be due to hormonal influence.
Take care.
