Brief Answer:
Yes, I can understand the confusion

Detailed Answer:
Well I can understand, dear.
But since the test is positive, you are definitely pregnant.
Please fix an appointment with a gynecologist, and go for ultrasound scan, it will confirm the pregnancy, and will tell you how many weeks pregnant you are.
Start 5 mg per day folic acid tablets.
Take care.
