In early pregnancy ultrasound is the most reliable.I think this could be a case of mistaken dates.

Thanks for your reply but they couldn't see the heart beat also while checked with transvaginal scan so they have called me for next scan after 12days but i'm really worried.What are the chances?

Heart beat shows up in 6-8 weeks.It would seem that your ultrasound estmation of gestational age is correct.You should get a repeat scan after 2 weeks.
