Maybe: Would need to see another level or two to confirm if dropping. If its an ectopic the level will often plateau, whereas if you passed most of the pregnancy already the level will drop. If you haven't seen a gynecologist, you need to and if bleeding severe, an ER visit may be needed. Molar pregnancy is also possible.
