Since you're very early pregnant, the hcg level is not very high. Most likely the first test was positive because the urine was most concentrated. Subsequent urines were not as concentrated, so they tested negative.

I would test again tomorrow morning on a first morning urine. As long as it's positive, I would believe it, and I wouldn't test any more.
