Honestly : Honestly the only way to know what is going on is to have an ultrasound. The likely explanation here is that you have retained some products of conception that were not completey loss when you were bleeding.These remnants can result in a small hormone rise. As far as getting pregnant again, if you ovulated and had unprotected sex it is possible. You need to be re-evaluated. Good luck.
