Thanks for posting your query.
The very faint line that you saw could be due to an early pregnancy or a false positive test or due to a dilute urine sample.
The best thing to do now is to wait till your periods are overdue by 5 days and then repeat the test using a highly sensitive kit available OTC and use an early morning first sample of urine for the test.
Alternatively you can get your serum beta HCG levels evaluated for confirmation.
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.
