Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

On the result, it should give a reference range for positive or negative. This might actually vary from lab to lab. Based on the symptoms you are describing, and the test result that you gave me, it would seem that you are pregnant, but very early. A repeat HCG level in 48 hours should be double that amount. This would be indicated in the setting of your bleeding.

I hope that this helps. If you have more questions, please click on "ASK ME A QUESTION" link above to directly ask me a question!
