Home pregnancy tests measure the level of HCG in your urine. HCG is produced only after conception and doubles in strength every day during your first couple of months. Most tests will only begin to pick up the HCG at the time your period is due. It will be very faint as your levels are very low then. The line will become darker as the pregnancy pregresses. A very faint positive line will usually mean you are pregnant. This colour will darken if you take the test again in about a week's time.
