A+sign means it is p: If it shows as a+ it is positive and if it is a-- means it is negative if it does not show+ it is supposed to be negative you can repeat the test if in doubt.

Likely positive test: From your description but a consult with a picture of the test strip could be useful. To sort out either way and remove all doubt the best option here would be a formal blood HCG (pregnancy test) which could be arranged by your primary care practitioner. Until this is done you should seek urgent medical attention if any abdominal pain or vaginal bleeding.
