If I am on probation for DWI and was given an ETG that will be positive, what do I do now?

Question Details: I am new to probation and was under the impression I can't buy alcohol, drive after drinking, or go to an establishment. Unfortunately today at my probation officers they sent me for ETG and I had 4 beers at a friend's BBQ Saturday night. I spent the night there then left in my car with an interlock. She informed me I cannot drink any alcohol at all on probation so it will come back dirty and be a violation. I think. What do I do now to prepare myself for what's coming and any other advice you may have for me would be very much appreciated.
