There are a lot of things that can cause this -

first of all, if the first test was wrong (such as how blue dye tests have been giving false positives lately) but unless it was a blue dye test this is not all that likely

second of all, if the first test was more sensitive (such as testing with a first response early result and then a first response rapid result the next day which is nowhere near as sensitive... though even the same brand from the same box can be two sensitivities)

third of all, if you were more hydrated the second time around it can dilute the amount of hcg in the pee

fourth of all, while actually least likely, is chemical pregnancy, you caught it and lost it that quickly. The other three scenarios are MUCH more likely than this one.
