You have not mentioned about the how many weeks of pregnancy you are having,without duration of pregnancy I can not say any thing.And it is not clear that what do you want to know about.
Apparently these are the findings of early pregnancy.

Hi Sonu,

What was the date of your last menstrual period? Did you have an abdominal USG (sonography) or a vaginal USG? The interpretation of your USG report depends upon how many weeks pregnant you are.

Generally fetal cardiac activity can be detected on a vaginal ultrasound scan at around
6 weeks of pregnancy.

Hi Sonu,

Fetal cardiac activity can be detected on ultrasound at around 6 weeks of pregnancy.

If no fetal cardiac activity is detected on ultrasound at 15 weeks of pregnancy, I would advise you to consult your gynecologist as soon as possible. He/she may want to repeat an ultrasound to confirm the findings of the first scan.
