hi, welcome to HCM , i am Dr Das
First of all, you didn't tell us what is the last menstrual period date. so, it is difficult to correlate the findings.
but, fetal cardiac activity is seen after 6 weeks of pregnancy. if you are beyond that , then there is some problem.
so, you have to repeat the test again.
