This is a...: I am very sorry but unless there is a good ultrasound that shows a heart beat now, then this is not a viable pregnancy

Difficult prediction: The abnormal rise of your betaHCG level probably reflects "abnormal placentation" (if those 2 values are accurate) and an increased risk of pregnancy loss despite the detection of a "heartbeat of 160". It is quite difficult to offer you an "honest likelihood that you will miscarry within the next few week". A repeat sonogram and repeat betaHCG level may be the best way to answer your concerns.
