low HCG level and no fetal pole at 5 weeks

Hi, I went to the doctor on monday and they took my hormone levels, it was 91.  I was 5w2d.  They told me this was low.  They also did an ultra sound and they saw a yolk sac, but no fetal pole.  I am getting another ultrasound done in a week.  Two days later, wednesday, I got more blood work done, they expected my HCG level to double, but it is only at 135.  Is this normal?? should I be worried? they told me its a 50/50 chance to be a successful pregnancy and I have to wait to see what the ultrasound shows in a week but I cant wait that long!!
