I took a hpt it was the Answers test the first line was faint pink and the second was bright pink so that told me I took the test right it did not take long then three min to show up it lit up as soon as I pee'd on it !

A few possibilities I can think of:

1) You were/are in the process of having a chemical pregnancy
2) Your HCG level is below the threshold level that the doctors office considers pregnant, but you are pregnant.  e.g. some offices consider any HCG level under 20 mIU to be "not pregnant" but sensitive tests can detect HCG at levels of 15 mIU which is normal for the very early stages of pregnancy
3) You had a false positive on the HPT

I think all you can really do is wait and see what happens.  If you dont get your period within a week, retest and go from there (if its still positive, you will need to go back to the doctor)
