Hard to say : At the moment your pregnancy test are going to be unreliable. You will not know if you are detecting hormone left over from the miscarriage or a new pregnancy. It is best to use condoms and schedule a follow up visit with your obgyn. Most recommend 1-2 normal cycles before attempted pregnancy again after miscarriage.
