Gestational sac more than one on vaginal ultrasound may indicate twin or multiple pregnancy if others are viable and visible. You need to undergo follow up USG scan on scheduled time to confirm the same.

Continue folic acid supplements, protein rich diet, avoid long journey/heavy work, maintain personal hygiene, take adequate bed rest.

Be well & take care.
