Thanks for the query.
The only symptom pointing towards having jaundice is orange colour of your urine which can be there because of many reasons like dehydration,taking some B complex medicine or because of any other medications.
However since you are not complaining of any nausea,vomiting,abdominal discomfort or pain abdomen,the chances of having any jaundice looks remote.
I would advise you to keep drinking plenty of water and see your symptoms.
If you have jaundice,then you shall definitely get some symptoms sooner or later.
I think wait and watch.
The moment you find some abnormal symptom,just go to the hospital.
Best of luck
