Thanks for posting your query.
The test suggests that the serum HCG titres are less than 6 mIU/ml. This is suggestive of a negative pregnancy test. But at 8 days past ovulation, it is right now too early to get a positive test. You should repeat the test at 12 days post ovulation to know any rise in the titres.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
