Normal pregnancy: Just relax and don't worry . You will probably be fine. Worrying makes matter worse. Time will tell you. Subsequent us will give better idea in second trimester.

Unclear results: That does not really make sense. I would ask your doctor to clarify the sonographic findings with you to make sure you understand what is going on with your pregnancy.

Gestational Sac: The gestational sac is the first ultrasound sign of pregnancy. You will usually see it beginning 5 weeks from your last menstrual period. By 6 weeks you should see the yolk sac and by 6 and 1/2 to 7 weeks the embryo.
