Possible: Technically you're a threatened miscarriage and sometimes the bleeding can be heavy. Tubal pregnancy must be considered as well. Your 6/15 HCG should definitely be going up for a normal pregnancy (at least 15%-20% every 2-3 days). If dropping quickly its probably a miscarriage and if it stays almost the same, that might be an ectopic pregnancy

You got to have: doubling of hcg in the blood every few days , if it is happening and ultrasound rules out an ectopic pregnancy then this mean your pregnancy is in good shape.

HCG level today?: If dropped or more or less similar, it is not a viable pregnancy
