It simply means that the abortion is incomplete and there are some remnant products of conception inside your uterus.
Get an ultrasound abdomen done and consult a gynecologist to do D&C.
Since some products are retained inside,pregnancy test is coming positive.

Hi, Thanks for using the HCM.
urine test takes 1 or 2 months to become negative, as hormone levels has to go down, but better to get your USG abdomen and pelvis to know uterine endometrial thickness to confirm complete abortion, consult a obstetrician for further management.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Thanks get well soon...
