A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.

On reviewing the urine pregnancy test provided by you, it is indeed faintly positive. It could mean a pregnancy, an early miscarriage or even an ectopic pregnancy which generally presents with cramps and a faint positive pregnancy test.
You will have to see a doctor at the earliest and get a beta hCG blood test done and also repeat the same after 48 hours. In case of an increasing titre, it will mean a normal pregnancy, if the tire falls or remains the same, it could be indicative of an ectopic pregnancy which would need a follow up with an ultrasound and immediate intervention with medical or surgical procedure.

Hope this helped.
Regards
