Google Experiment data not accurate

I am having an issue with getting experiment progress as it appears that it does not show accurate data.


I have created a new goal named "Action Initiated Goal" to track the times when a user is initiating an action.


I've also set an experiment with one variation using the above goal in order to track which of the original or the variation perform better against this goal.


After a few days of testing it, it seems like the experiment is not showing data accurately as the goal is recording completions for the page that I am testing and the experiment is recording only conversions (see attachments). 


Can anyone tell me if I am missing something?
