Home pregnancy tests can be positive as soon as the first day of your missed period. Confirmation of pregnancy can involve additional testing such as blood test for hCG or a transvaginal ultrasound, typically done at 5 weeks to see the fetus in the gestational sac. Use first morning urine for best results.

That negative urine test is only called false negative if you have a positive blood test, not just your symptoms (missed period and cramp). If you are not pregnant, another test is also negative. Each commercial test has a different sensitivity so I would recommend a different or a more expensive test kit although a blood test (gold standard) is preferred.
