I am taking metorolol 25mg and hctz25/lisinppril 20mg. Would this show positive for valium?

No, it shouldnt. Many drug tests, especially immunoassay types, arent very accurate. Drugs that would trigger positive for valium or other drugs in that class (benzodiazepines) are drugs like valium (or diazepam is the generic name) of course, Xanax (alprazolam), Ativan (lorazepam), Klonopin (clonazepam) or Versed (midazolam). Most of these drugs are classed as anxiolytics (or for anxiety, sometimes called tranquilizers) Versed though, is used mainly prior to procedures like colonoscopies, or epidural injections, sometimes dental work, etc. to relax the patient plus Versed has an amnesic effect so you can be alert and follow commands during a procedure like a colonoscopy but afterward, the patient doesnt remember anything and thinks they were "out" for the procedure. Have you had a colonoscopy or any procedure done lately where they sedated you? Perhaps they gave you a benzodiazepine and that could trigger a positive like this.
