With two neg Pcr tests, you certainly don't have the virus.  With two weak + antibody tests, I would ask your doctor for the 'Riba' confirmatory test for antibody.  it is VERY specific for hcv antibody.  You have a good chance that the Riba will be neg.  If so, you are neg for hep C virus and antibody.  Most people on this forum would give their left arm for that.
