Should LH be this dark on cd5?

Hello, we’ve been ttc for a little over 2 years. I thought we finally conceived this month but then I started spotting a day before expected af (I never spot before af) 

Spotted on cd 28 (Which I thought might be IB) then next morning had a light flow on what I called CD1, heavy flow on cd2, started kinda heavy and ended the day spotting on cd3 and now I’m barely spotting cd4. My periods are normally 6/7 days with 3/4 days of heavy bleeding. Took an ovulation test this morning and it’s reading as a 0.35 on the premom app. I thought the line would be barely visible if I was still on my period so I’m confused. Anyone ever went through something like this?

    It's still negative, it's not as dark as the control line. But if you're concerned it could be a sign of a hormone imbalance (for example, women with PCOS can have elevated LH even without pending ovulation), then seek out advice from a fertility specialist. After 2 years of TTC it would be a good idea anyway, if you're not already.

    That isn't "dark."  It's completely normal to always have a second line of varying darkness/lightness.  LH levels fluctuate.

    I just took another LH test and it’s even darker than the first one
