I took one on the 24th and it was still positive and then I took one the 27th and got a negative.. I go for my blood work on Aug 3rd.. Could I not be pregnant?

I am on day four of taking HCG drops for weight loss and on the second day my eyes got really red. By the third day my eyelids were swollen and now on the fourth day my whole eye (both eyes) are swollen. The lids, the area below my eyes, and even the part between my nose and eyes. I called my doctor but he is booked until next week. Concerned because this is getting progressively worse. Any link to HCG? I have no known allergies to anything.
