In brief: Depends...

Depends on the type of blood test.
If you had a quantitative hcg, your doctor would see a number/ amount of pregnancy hormone in your blood. If it was any number greater from 1-25, that is an equivocal test which would need to be repeated. If it is greater than 25, then you would be considered positive for pregnancy. If you had a qualitative hcg, the lab will report equivocals as negative.
