About 98% accurate if positive, less accurate if negative as there are more things that can give you a false negative. The test can be taken too soon after conception, wait until a missed period if you can, taken at the wriong time of day, a morning urine is best, or taken after drinking to much so the hormone is too diluted.

You are most likely pregnant.

This is why false negative pregnancy tests are very common if used too soon. False positive tests are very rare.
