This is the chart for hcg levels. 3 weeks LMP means, 3 weeks since last menstrual period.

3 weeks LMP: 5 - 50 mIU/ml
4 weeks LMP: 5 - 46 mIU/ml
5 weeks LMP: 18 - 7,340 mIU/ml
6 weeks LMP: 1,080 - 56,500 mIU/ml
7 â?? 8 weeks LMP: 7, 650 - 229,000 mIU/ml
9 â?? 12 weeks LMP: 25,700 - 288,000 mIU/ml
13 â?? 16 weeks LMP: 13,300 - 254,000 mIU/ml
17 â?? 24 weeks LMP: 4,060 - 165,400 mIU/ml
25 â?? 40 weeks LMP: 3,640 - 117,000 mIU/ml
Non-pregnant females: <5.0 mIU/ml
Postmenopausal females: <9.5 mIU/ml

I'm guessing though your cycles must be irregular since you are unsure how far along you are. After six weeks, as you can see, hcg levels are not a reliable marker for how far along you are in pregnancy because of the wide range. Furthermore, the hcg levels decrease in the second and third trimesters, so hcg levels should not be used to confirm progress of pregnancy beyond that point.

You are probably 5 or 6 weeks pregnant. Luckily as your pregnancy advances, the gestational age can be better pinpointed by measuring the length of the fetal pole and gestational sac.

Good luck :) and congrats!
