In brief: Neither or both

LH testing only measures Luteinizing hormone which SUGGESTS ovulation but does not confirm the same.
You could have ovulated twice that month or not at all.

In brief: Ovulation tests

I noticed you have asked this question a few times in various ways.
Home ovulation tests are to be stopped after a positive result as the LH hormone lingers around. Also these are good screening tests but not definitive tests for ovulation. A luteal phase progesterone is the more definitive way to test for ovulation.
