API test kit

I have a slight problem with the ammonia test. It keeps reading 0.25. The aquarium has been running for 3 months. Nitrite 0, Nitrate 10. To make sure, I tested my replacement water (newly made) and it also read 0.25. Bad test kit?

Mine also looks like it is at.25. It has never shown the bright yellow as being 0.
