Brief Answer:
Consult a gynecologist.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX
I can understand your concern.
You did not specify on which sample (urine/blood) the hCG test was done & the result not mentioned.

Assuming that it is done on urine sample and it is positive, since you have decided not to continue the pregnancy I would advise you to consult a gynecologist to take the abortion pill under her/his guidance.

First of all the duration of pregnancy has to be ascertained as abortion pills will be effective if the duration is less than 7 weeks.
Secondly, the location of the gestational sac (pregnancy) should be intrauterine (within the womb) not in the fallopian tube (ectopic pregnancy). Because if abortion pills are given it may lead on to severe bleeding and abdominal pain.

And taking abortion pills without consulting a gynecologist may result in severe bleeding, abdominal cramps, incomplete abortion or infection.

Hope this answers your query.
However, I shall be glad to answer any follow up query if you.
Take care.
