You could actually go either way. Sometimes in early pregnancy you have some bleeding. Old blood (dark) is nothing to be alarmed about. It is estimated that somewhere between 20 and 35% of all pregnancies result in miscarriage (sometimes before you even suspect pregnancy) so it's a waiting game pretty much. There's not much you can do except repeat the pregnancy test after a week if you still haven't had a normal period. It is possible to get a false negative but typically a positive is reliable. But, make sure you follow the directions on the HPT exactly, including the time of reading for best results.
