What does the beta HCG test result of 42,557 suggest?

Hello,I am currently 14 weeks pregnant. Today, I had a beta HCG test at the hospital due to light spotting. (An ultrasound showed a healthy, active fetus, heartbeat 168 BPM, measuring on point for gestational age.) The spotting was found to be caused by a low lying placenta.My question is about my HCG test results. The lab results show that the levels are at 42,557, and it looks to be under the abnormal tab with a flag of H. The doctor did not explain this, so it has me a little concerned. Wondering if anybody can help. Any insight is appreciated.
