Thanks for the query.
Your reports indicate that you have slightly high total cholesterol and triglycerides which are components of fat in blood.
Your blood sugar levels and TSH levels are normal.
LDL cholesterol is also just about borderline high.
You are not having diabetes and if your blood pressure is also normal and you are not a smoker,then I would advise you to control your cholesterol and triglycerides by changing your lifestyle and there should not be any need of anti cholesterol medicines.
Lifestyle measures to be adopted are
Regular brisk walk and exercises for 45 minutes a day.
Keeping your weight down.
Moderating your alcohol intake,if taking more.
More of XXXXXXX vegetables and fresh fruits
Avoidance of junk fatty foods and colas.

I hope to have answered your query however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
