Yeah, discharge can cause a false positive--it's partly why they have the clean catch instructions. However, if you had 250 by 24 hour, then you could've had a 1+ anyway. In addition, the dipstick is related to concentration, so a concentrated sample will give you a higher dip than you'd expect.
The only way to know is to get a repeat 24 hour, unfortunately.
