In brief: ? blighted ovum
By the time the HCG reaches 4000 to 6000 there should be fetal development noted on transvaginal ultrasound.
With an HCG of 21000 the Progesterone level should be over 9 (and more likely be between 12 to 20)in the first trimester) and there should be fetal heart motion present. The ultrasound should be repeated in about 1 week for confirmation, but the prognosis for this pregnancy is poor.

The hCG can be higher with no fetal heart motion with a twin pregnancy - but the progesterone is still too low for that to be the case. This is likely a blighted ovum (no fetal development from a fertilized egg).
