Yes, diluted urine will definitely affect the amount of HCG the test is trying to find in your urine. It is best to use FMU (first morning urine), or at least hold your urine in for a few hours before testing to get a more accurate result.
As long as you tested with your first urine in the morning the tests should give you an accurate result. As you have just got your period I would recommend charting all your daily statistics, I use fertility friend (feel free to have a nosy) - I like keeping everything documented as it helps determine what to expect for upcoming months.
what the users above have said - FMU is the best, or at least something non-diluted. you want the most concentrated for the best possible reading.
which is contradictory though to OPKs (or at least the ones I use), which recommend using urine later in the day.
do you know when you ovulated? if you have a "typical" 28 day cycle, you'd "probably" have ovulated between the 13 and 18 of April. I use these terms lightly because every woman is different, LOL, especially coming off birth control. but if you ovulated the 18th or later, it may just be too early to tell, also. hope this helps!
