new pregnancy, waiting on thyroid diagnosis

Ok, June 10 I saw an endocrinologist because my Tsh was slightly elevated but my TPO Antibodies were 217 ( normal range 0-34) was put on synthroid, gave urine  for pregnancy test that came back negative. I now have a late period of 4 days, took a home pregnancy test and it said positive immediately! I don't know what i need to do. I am calling both doctors this morning...
