Faulty test? Or BFP?

I am 11 DPO so thought I would test (because I am too impatient to wait for AF)
I did a Crystal Clear and got this...
It was really faint (I thought that I was even imagining it).
So I did a First Response and got this...
Even though the lines don't go all the way to the bottom is it a BFP or is the test faulty? I don't want to get my hopes up...

Thanks everyone! So excited! I was hoping everything I have been feeling for the last few days weren't AF symptoms!
So I guess I better go and see the Dr this week to get it confirmed.
DH is out until 2:30 today...so more waiting before I can tell him!

Well he is going for his motorcycle license today, so I am going to talk to him about that first.
If he has good news about that, then I can say that I have good news too...ta da!
If he has bad news then, I can say that I have news that will cheer him up...ta da!
I would really like to be standing at the door way with the test in my hands, but it really is his day so I have to let him get his news in first!

Well DH came home early (just as I was doing my 3rd test just to triple check!)
He told me his good news - he got his motorcycle license yay!
Then I told him my good news and held up the 3 tests...his response was swearing (BS) in an excited way! Then I cried.
So the question is now...when do I go to the Dr to get it confirmed? Do I need to wait for my period to be late before they will test? And how long?
Sorry for all the questions, it is my first time!

I was very lucky for it to be a quick process. Talking to my mum when we were discussing TTC, she said that she fell very quickly with both my brother and I. We might just be very fertile people.
Thanks for the advice re: Dr.. I will make an appointment for next Wednesday - I will be 5 weeks then.
I really want to wait for Drs confirmation before I start telling my close family and friends. Keeping a big secret like this is hard for me!!
