For a pregnancy test to be positive it needs to detect a certain concentration of the hormone hcg in your urine. This hormone is produced after the embryo implants into the uterus. The level starts off really low and doubles approximately every 48 hours. Most tests won't detect anything below 10 /15 hcg and some don't detect until a hcg reaches 25.
So, yes you could be pregnant as it could simply be that when you tested your hcg wasn't detectable on the test you did. If no sign of period in a few days re test using the first urine of the day (when it's more concentrated). Good luck!
