Too early: Commercial home pregnancy tests will turn positive about the when you would be 1 week late on your period. Repeat the test at that time.

Blood test: You may repeat the test in 4-5 days or get a blood test for HCG level to settle the issue. Consult this site. http://www.nichd.nih.gov/health/topics/menstruation/conditioninfo/Pages/causes.aspx
