Can retest in 5 days: A faint positive line on a urine pregnancy test is still positive, but the concentration of HCG in the urine is not high enough to create a strongly positive line. If pregnant, the line should be strongly colored a few days later. A "borderline" faint test result means the HCG is close to, but not at, the positive level. If there is a faint positive several days later, one's doctor can evaluate.

Impossible with those negative urine and blood tests. Your symptoms could be related to the hormonal imbalance which can explain the late period.
