Business Plan question about start up expenses

As I'm doing the numbers for my first business plan, I was wondering if it was bad to have an actual "Loss at Start-up(Start-up Expenses)", thereby giving me a negative "Total Capital" in my "Liabilities and Capital" section. My "Total Capital and Liabilities" are positive when all the numbers are run through.

Yeah, I'm using Business Plan Pro from Palo Alto if anyone is familiar with that. I'm still new to the business planning thing, and any input or comments are very appreciated, thanks!
