You likely miscarried as your pregnancy test was positive and is now negative after heavy bleeding. A blood pregnancy test is more sensitive than a urine test and might still detect some of the pregnancy hormone in your blood (beta hcg) to confirm that you were indeed pregnant.

From the info you provided it appears that you miscarried. Please note that about 25% of early pregnancies are lost spontaneously, mostly due to chromosomal defects. Wish you good health.
