Faint positive but period

Okay so yesterday morning I started my period 6 days early. Yesterday afternoon I took a HPT and I got a faint positive. But I am having more than light bleeding. I am still bleeding steady 36 hours later.All I have heard about implant bleeding is that it is light and only lasts for a short amount of time. Is it possible that this is implant bleeding? I never had it with my other 2 kids. I'm confused. I want to be pregnant but I don't want to get my hopes up. Thanks in advance for any help, advise, or at this point just anyone going through same thing.

it could be a chemical pregnancy or a very early miscarriage

No, this wouldnt be implantation bleeding.  Implantation bleeding occurs when a fertilized egg attaches to the uterus and it takes 3-5 days after this occurs before the body starts producing enough HCG to be detected on a HPT.

3 things I can think of:
1) the test was inaccurate and gave a false result (blue dye tests are notorious for giving false positives.  You can also get a false positive if you read the results after the correct time frame).
2) You ovulated earlier than expected (would have to, to get a positive on a HPT) and are having a form of bleeding during your pregnancy - the cause has yet to be determined
3) You ovulated earlier than expected and are having a chemical pregnancy.

The only way to know what is happening in your case is to see a doctor.  You can also take more HPTs to see if option 1) can be ruled out.
