BFP or evaporation lines?

So, last month I thought I was pregnant and decided to take a few pregnancy tests, as my period was delayed for 12 days. I went to the store and bought a pack of two reveal pregnancy tests, at first they were negative but I looked at them about an hour or two later and there were dark clear pink lines where a positive would be. AF arrived but was a bit odd, lighter than usual and either pink or dark brown in colour. Since then I have taken another two and the same thing happened, they were negative but then about half an hour later the same pink lines. Four test's I've done now and it happened on every one of them. Any input would be very helpful, thank you.
Also the lines I saw weren't thin, they were the same as the control line, which I heard is usually a BFP, as apparently evaporation lines are just usually grey and are usually thinner than the control lines.
(Just a note, I binned the tests so I don't have any pictures.)

Thank you both of you. I'm going to get a different brand today and will see what that has to say. Do you know if it would matter what time of the day I tested, because if I am pregnant then I would be 10 weeks by now. Some people say it doesn't matter but that you should hold your wee in for four hours before hand, and not to drink to much, or do you think it would be better with FMU?
Markle; I have my fingers crossed now! Hoping for the best, wasn't trying but will be a lovely surprise if it happens. Congratulations on your news by the way and I wish you a fabulous 9 months x

So, I took another test today and BFN.
No evaporation lines what-so-ever though this time, so maybe they were positives and my hcG level is just to high. I'll be booking an appointment with my doctor some point next week though to have a blood test. Usually he can fit me in there and then which will be good. raenewmummy; congratulations. I wish you and your baby lots of happiness :)
Thank you for all your comments everyone :)
