Mean sac diameter measures 23.0mm comssesponding to 6w6d. Yolk sac and fetal pole are not visualised and the findings are suggestive of missed abortion .

Only a repeat ultrasound can clear the doubt.
If you do not present with bleeding or spotting per vaginum,you can safely wait for another weak and then go for a repeat ultrasound.
In case you bleed,then there is no use in carrying the pregnancy forward.
There are many cases in which foetal pole develops late but further the pregnancy continues without any complication.
