Hello Neha,
Thanks for writing in HCM.
Urine test of pregnancy has 99% accuracy. Urine test may be false positive if you are taking some medicines like phenothiazine . In ultrasound if one sac is visible then it gives you the cofirmation of gestational sac. For more confirmation You can do your HCG hormone level. HCG levels will double every 72 hours. The level will reach its peak in the first 8 - 11 weeks of pregnancy and then will decline .You can repeat your transvaginal ultrasound after 2 weeks for viability of fetus. for further advice consult your gynecologist.
Wishing you a good health.
