Welcome to ehealthforum.
Urine pregnancy tests can show you false negative results (negative result even though you are pregnant). The orange discharge/spotting could be a sign of pregnancy. Look out for other symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy. Consider getting an examination and a blood HCG level test done by your gynecologist to confirm/rule out pregnancy. Blood HCG level tests are accurate and reliable.
Take care.
