Can a blood disease affect pregnancy test results?

Patient

Q: Can Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis affect pregnancy results like a blood test or home pee test.

I am 3 weeks late for my period. I am feeling sick all the time occasionally vomiting, i feel faint all the time, my breasts have swollen, my nipples are tender and recently started "leaking" a clear or white liquid. My head is hurting, i'm moody and i have some mild cramping. I have never had these symptoms before recently so i doubt it could be related to an upcoming period. Besides that I've been feeling this was for a few weeks. I have taken 1 blood test and 3 home tests all negative. I have LCH so i ask can Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis affect pregnancy results like a blood test or home pee test. I am 20 years old and sexually active with only condoms as protection. Could it be pregnant and the results being affected by my LCH?
