Had a blood test yesterday and my HCG was 148. She said that is low for 5 weeks,that it should be 50,000-100,000. Should I be worried? Is that right?

In brief: Low; wrong dates?

That is very low for 5 weeks; BUT the usual reason is that the pregnancy is not as far along as believed.
If the dating is absolutely certain then that is an abnormally low result. Your doctor should be able to tell you more, and I do hope this helps.
