Welcome to HCM,
If first test is done very early then it might be negative.
But second test is done in time i.e after 8-10 days passed over her expected period might be positive.
But again on ultra sound sac is empty and pregnancy test positive, chances of having Ectopic pregnancy is there.
Consult and remain follow up with your Obst. for further evaluation.
Ok and bye.
