Hi, thanks for using HCM.

Urine pregnancy test usually shows positive results ten days after missed periods, hormonal levels has to rise to be detected in urine. As you have got your test on 4 days after missed periods, you can wait for one more week and take test again and fallow the instructions given in leaflet.
Blood HCG test is more sensitive in early detection of pregnancy. Under guidance of qualified doctor you can get it done.
As you had spotting, could be due to implantation bleeding,due to pregnancy, which is seen in few women.
not to worry. wait for some more days. Consult your doctor for further management.

Hope this helps you.
