Hi, welcome to HCM.
Anteverted uterus is normal finding , it is position of uterus behind urinary bladder. There is pregnancy in uterine which is confirmed by gestational sac. However there is no foetal pole means foetal part identified.
It may happens in either missed abortion or blightened ovum( pregnancy in which foetus doesn't form) . You need to do follow up ultrasonography after 2 weeks for confirmation of viability.

Hope I have answered your query.
