according to your lmp your gestational age should be 6 weeks and 5 days on 6th june,
there almost 1 week 3 days difference according to scan,
the possibilities are,
-wrong dates,
-blighted ovum,
so if you undergo scan on Wednesday day in case of normal pregnancy you can see fetal growth if not you will not find any improvement,
then depending on result you can proceed further.
take care.
