Can I trsust my blood pregnancy test?

I've read some of the replies on this topic, it has been said that "Not all women show a positive on a pregnancy test (must do)", but when it is said not all women do, do you mean just on a urine test or does it also include the blood tests?
I got serum quantitative blood test at 27 weeks and it was negative. So can I stop worrying about pregnancy or "not all women show a positive" applies to me too at 27 weeks with a blood test?
For some reason I keep thinking what if there was a lab error and I got a false negative. I don't want to be pregnant btw.

Also I've been having vaginal pain, not a lot, but enough where I can feel it when I for example, sit or walk and I also had spotting 11 days before my period was suppose to start and that hasn't happened to me before so I'm worried. Could this all be pregnancy related despite having a negative blood test at 27 weeks? Or could it be something else? Would a physical exam and pap test help? If you are more than 20 weeks pregnant would the doctor be able to feel your stomach and be able to tell if you are pregnant?

Thanks! Looking forward to the reply
