Likely: Would repeat the HPT in 7-10 days on first morning urine (HCG levels highest in urine then). If neg then not pregnant and not miscarriage. First period like this? Late/early/on time? Could be perimenopausal, but must wait and see. If periods continue to be "not normal" for you, see GYN provider for discussion and evaluation. Hope this was helpful.
