Urine hcg: Urine pregnancy tests are a bit less accurate that blood pregnancy tests. Chances are your HCG level is right near the level of being positive, which would explain why one negative and one positive. Your urine level may change slightly based on how hydrated you are. I would either get a blood pregnancy test or retest in 2-3 days when the level is slightly higher.

Pregnancy test pos?: Usually, home pregnancy tests are meant to be evaluated several minutes after testing. Also, usually lines showing +be results are blue or pink. A white line is usually a careful inspection of where the test would have shown a blue or pink line -- if it was +ve. However, not knowing which test you used, makes it tough to be sure. The best thing to do is see your ob for a reliable, clear test :)

I took a first response pregnancy test and a question mark showed up. It happened on two separate tests from two separate boxes. I understand the question mark means invalid but two tests? I'm so confused.
