You could have tested too soon. If you have still not started your period, repeat the test now.

Most home pregnancy tests are urine tests. They detect the amount of hCG in your urine, but only when it reaches a certain level. If you use one of these tests too early in pregnancy, the amount of hCG in your urine may not be high enough for a positive result. But most urine pregnancy tests will give you accurate results if you test a few days after your period would normally be due.
