If it was more than 10mins after you did the test, what you could be seeing is an evaporative line. Read your instructions, they will tell you not to read any changes the test makes after a certain amount of time.

Yes I second the evap line. Chuck it and do a fresh one if your worried and never read any after 10 mins.
Use first morning urine for best results.

I really like using the ones that display the words "pregnant" or "not pregnant." During a scare from a late period on the pill, I took one and was very relieved. I didn't want to chance having one that had an iffy result.

A word of warning with these for people that go line hunting. ONLY read the digital display! DO NOT take the strip out and say "OMG! there is two lines there!!!"
There is always two lines on them. It doesn't mean your pregnant. Only read the digital display.
