Shocking +HPT... not sure what to do about progesterone

Shock of my life... I got a + on a HPT yesterday at maximum 12DPO on a natural cycle. I had a + OPK last Monday so if I ovulated that day, which I don't think I did, yesterday would have been 12DPO at the most. Is this early? I used the early pregnancy test Target brand (the green and white Up & Up box). I went in this morning for a beta and progesterone check and it came back at beta: 48.6 and progesterone 8.5.

I don't know how accurate all of the info online is about betas, but if today was at most 13DPO and more likely 11 or 12 DPO, is 48.6 ok? I go in on Tuesday for a repeat and the nurse said they want it at 100. I thought it had to double every 3 days, not really every 2 days.

I asked them about P4 because I've been having pinkish (not all the time, but sometimes) CM since Wednesday. I assumed AF was coming. The nurse said I could if I wanted to, but an 8 something doesn't necessarily mean anything bad and adding P4 wouldn't necessarily save anything if anything had to be saved.

I have leftover Crinone at home. She said I could if I wanted to. Should I take 1 a day or 2? How would I know if it's working if Crinone doesn't show up in b/w? Then if RE wants me not to take it, even if beta is good, will I still have to take it for 10-12 weeks?

Lots of questions, I know. Head is spinning!
