Jodi is correct. Most home pregnancy tests will read positive after several hours--the reasons and amount of time it takes vary by test, and there are a few that don't do it, but most do. You have to look at the test in the correct time frame. If you wait too long, like Jodi said, more than 10 minutes or so, the result is no longer valid.

If you checked the first one a day later, what you saw was probably an evaporation line. After a certain amount of time, a test becomes invalid (usually after about 5 or 10 minutes). So it is more likely that your second test that was negative is the correct one.
