If my hCG level is  a 12 can I be pregnant?

Yes: The hCG is less than about 4 in a non-pregnant woman - so with a level of 12 it is likely that you have conceived quite recently. A repeat level after 48 hours will be informative as to whether the pregnancy appears normal - the level should double every 48 hours. ...Read more
