Help! So about a month ago there was some genital contact with my bf and I. I missed my period this month, 4 days after my missed period I took a test. It came out negative. This morning (3 days later) I took another (with first morning urine). That one came out positive. It said to hold the test almost straight up, but mine was almost horizontal but slighty up. It said to put it in the urine for 5 sec, it may have been a little longer. Also I shook it a little to get any extra urine off. Could any of these things make a difference in results?
In addition to that,today when i got home there was what looks like could be blood in my underwear. What's going on? Am I pregnant, should i take another test?
Please help! Thank you...

So, you took both of those tests after you missed your period? In that case, you waited long enough and one of those results is inaccurate. However, with a positive result it's always a good idea to see a gynecologist and re-test there, so that you can confirm a pregnancy if that positive result was indeed the correct one, and talk to your doctor about your options right away.

You should mention that to your doctor when you go in.

Well, you could be pregnant. Or you could not. With only two data points - one test saying you are pregnant and one saying you aren't - it's pretty hard to guess. A doctor can verify if you really are pregnant or not. And if you are pregnant and are having vaginal bleeding, it's really good to check in with the doctor about that. You can also take another home pregnancy test.

Is there one test that you would think is more accurate than the other?

And if I start a flow like my period could I assume that it is my period?

If you start and it's normal flow then yep, you can consider that your period. Per the test? No way to know - you'd just have to retest.
