A pregnancy test attempts to determine whether or not a woman is pregnant. Modern pregnancy tests look for chemical markers associated with pregnancy. These markers are found in urine and blood, and pregnancy tests require sampling one of these substances. The first of these markers to be discovered, human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), was discovered in 1930 to be produced by the trophoblast cells of the fertilised ovum (blastocyst). While hCG is a reliable marker of pregnancy, it cannot be detected until after implantation:[1] this results in false negatives if the test is performed during the very early stages of pregnancy. Obstetric ultrasonography may also be used to detect pregnancy. Obstetric ultrasonography was first practiced in the 1960s; the first home test kit for hCG was released in the mid-1970s.

If the white ring could have been something else your doctor should have told you. Since its been two weeks try a home pregnancy test again. Sometimes you get a negative even when you are pregnant, make sure to get one that's at least a two pack, and take them at different times of day.
If pregnancy is a good thing for you then congratulations, my first is 6 weeks and I absolutely adore him, even when I only get 2hrs of sleep.

If you took the test before your missed period (Early Pregnancy Test) or only a couple of days after your missed period, you may not have enough of the pregnancy hormone (hcG) to get an accurate test result at any other time of the day, OTHER THAN THE MORNING.

The reason most pregnancy tests tell you to test first thing in the morning is because the levels of hcG in your urine, if present, will be at their highest. I would suggest you believe your first test, as it was taken at the appropriate time (morning) and re-test again, in the morning, in a few days. If that test is positive, you are most likely pregnant.
