Yes: Beta-HCG levels are expected to double every 48-hours in early pregnancy. Failure to double especially in the context of vaginal bleeding suggests a nonviable pregnancy which is most often from a miscarriage. These are more common than anyone realizes; in fact half of all pregnancies miscarry and are often never even detected. Don't distress, but do continue with your scheduled follow-up tests.

Non viable pregnancy: With a Progesterone this low, the pregnancy is almost certainly not good. It could be a miscarriage or possibly an ectopic pregnancy.
