What does Gestational sac measured 12.2 mm and yolk sac 3.6 mm indicate?

I have retroverted uterus am 6 weeks 5 days pregnant. When I went for eraly preg scan 3 days back (6w+2d) the doc could find only gestational sac and yolk sac but no fetal pole or cardiac activity.My hcg level that day was 8941 mIU/ml.Gestational sac measured 12.2 mm and yolk sac 3.6 mm.The doc said the growth was corresponding only to 5W3D and asked me to repeat the scan after 2 weeks. Is my situation normal? My LMP was 31.10.2011 and had IUI on 15.11.2011.
