hi,thanks for query.No this is not possible.Pregnancy test detects hormones in the urine,infection can not lead to false positive test.I hope you have missed period and that is the reason why you have taken this test.Please talk to your doctor and get this confirmed.Please also go for urine routine test to see for presence of infection.
wishing you good health.
