I would call the ultrasound place and confirm that you are in fact booked in for an early pregnancy scan (or a first trimester scan).
Once you have confirmed that, tell them what is written on the referral and check it is sufficient. If it's not, call your GP's office and just tell them that the referral is incorrect and ask for it to be reprinted correctly. You shouldn't have to see the GP again, but if you do, make sure they bulk bill you for the appointment!
FWIW, I've never had to fast for a pregnancy ultrasound! Some places tell you to drink a litre (or whatever value) of water for early scans so they can get a good view of the uterus. It's the comment about fasting that would have me concerned..

The doctor's request sounds fine, I'm not sure you've communicated to the ultrasound place exactly what you need though. I'd ring them back and tell them exactly what's on the form. I've also never needed to fast before an ultrasound, just lots of water especially before the early scans.
