Pregnancy Tests: It means you should repeat the test with a different product. Don't freak till more information is known.

Freakin out?: I assume because of the "freaking out" bit that this was a pregnancy test. If it was negative before and positive now it means the HCG has risen to a level that is is now positive. Kind of straightforward.
