Hello madam, well from the history you have given, since your periods are just 2 days delayed, I would suggest you to waite for few days, because sometimes in very early weeks the urine pregnancy test may show faintly positive line or will not turn out be positive, this is because of low levels of beta HCG....i would also suggest you to consult your gynaecologist because you may require a pre conceptional counselling not only because you are anaemic but also because of your age may be adviced to start on iron medications, depending on your levels of haemoglobin, your route of iron administration depends....hope i was helpful to you. ..
