Probably: A faint line is still a line and usually does mean you are pregnant; Its always best to repeat it in a few days to be certain. Best wishes!

I took a home pregnancy test this morning and there was a very faint line. Does this mean I'm pregnant?

Repeat the test: You're very likely to be pregnant, false positive is very rare even with faint line. the test is operator dependent, which means the one reading it will say what it is. if there is a line it is usually mean positive test, if it is very faint and you are not sure if it is there, repeat it in 24 hr and the faint line will be no longer faint "if it is there". Hope this helps.

Pregnancy: Could be a weak positive. I recommend waiting a week and then rechecking in a week.
