Hard to tell: Since you don't know when you ovulate if you ovulate at all, it's hard for me to tell how accurate your blood test is. At least it is accurate at that time. If you're in doubt over potential pregnancy, repeat it in 3 -4 weeks.

Probably not: Even an ectopic pregnancy would make your pregnancy test turn positive. A negative b-hcg rules out an ectopic.
