Probably positive: Sounds like a positive test to me... 2 lines is a positive... Reccomend follow- up with md for blood test.

New brand: U could try a new brand but sometimes the lines can be seen if it stays in the urine too long. Wait a few more days and it may "light up".

Chemical preg: If you had a positive pregnancy test followed by a negative, it is likely a chemical pregnancy, a very early miscarriage.
