Positive Pregnancy test after miscarriage, help?(pic incl.)

I had a miscarriage 5 weeks and 3 days ago.(April 22) I was 9weeks pregnant.
It was a natural miscarriage and it took me 3 hours to pass everything. The next day (Apr 23) I had a vaginal ultrasound which showed that everything had passed and I didn't need a D&C.
I had another vaginal ultrasound (May 21) and it showed that my body was back to normal.

Yesterday I took a pregnancy test. It was a faint positive.
Today I took another and it was a slightly darker positive (but I believe this is because my urine was slightly more concentrated by 1 hour).

Is it a new pregnancy? Or possible left over hormones?

I would assume a new pregnancy but a doctor would know for sure.

HCG levels (pregnancy hormone) depend greatly on how far the pregnancy was, but it could take up to 35 days untill it completely disappear, it's been 5 weeks for u so that strongly suggests a new pregnancy, u should get an ultra sound to confirm
