Abnormal Vaginal Culture

I am officially freaking out! My doctor's appt was last Monday, on the 6th and I got a pap smear and a vaginal culture done. Well, instead of calling all the patients with abnormal issues, they give you a little card and then you call this number after a few days to get your results. If they are abnormal, they tell you to call the office.
Well, I totally forgot to call the stupid number and randomly remembered today, thank god. So, I call and my pap is good, but my vaginal culture is abnormal, which more than likely means I have some sort of infection. I'm freaking out cause I haven't had any symptoms at all, and I don't know how long I've had it, and I'm scared to death it isn't good for the baby.
I have to call them tomorrow because they're closed for today. I'm thinking it may be bacterial vaginosis because (guessing from what I read online) I'm symptomless. I've never had that before in my life, and read in the What to Expect book that it can cause complications, like pre-term labor and miscarriage. I'm trying to not panic before tomorrow morning. Anyway, anyone else had anything like this so far?
