I am 2 weeks pregnant, hCG level 397 with abdominal cramp but no bleeding, is it common to have another blood test after a week as my clinic told?

In brief: Yes and no

Usually the test is done 48 hours after the first one to document that HCG is rising and is about 2 x higher than the previous test.
This means the pregnancy is viable.
