Hello there.

Considering your last menses to be on 2nd september, your baby should have been visible on ultrasound by now.
In case it not seen other serious causes like ectopic pregnancy has to be ruled out (pregnancy outside the uterus)

Bleeding can occur in ectopic pregnancy and miscarriage as well. But in your case the doctor has not seen any pregnancy in the uterus till now.

You should get blood beta hcG levels to check if the levels fall in the discrimnatory zone for pregnancy to be visualized on ultrasound.
If yes ,You need to get a proper ultrasound from a radiology expert to confirm your pregnancy is intra uterine and viable.

Do not delay.

I hope I have answered your query.

Take care.
