There had been ice on the txwys, so I was instructed to taxi to the next taxiway, take the active for backtaxi on runway 4. I read back the clearance. There was no response so I proceeded. As I was on the runway the controller advised me I was supposed to hold short. In my opinion, since there was no response to my readback, I was not in the wrong.
