You're way more likely to get a false negative test than a false positive, especially if you've taken multiple tests.
Pregnancy tests check for a specific hormone that your body produces in significant amounts only when pregnant. So you're much more likely to get a false negative (that you're not pregnant) because of a defective test or because your body isn't producing enough of that hormone to register on the tests.
The chances that your body is making the hormone without you being pregnant is pretty slim. And the test reacting when the hormone isn't present is also pretty far out there.
So, chances are, you're pregnant. The bleeding that you're experiencing is quite likely what is called *implantation* bleeding. Basically when the embryo attaches to the uterine wall. It's fairly common, and frequently mistaken for a regular period.

My suggestion would be to get in to see a doctor. They may want to do a blood test (which is much more specific than a urine test) and/or they may send you for an ultrasound, which would definitely confirm one way or another :)
